A Public Order
Strange behavior this weekend by the bluegills, they were timid to say the least. Most weren't able to fully commit and I saw way more swirls than I felt tugs. Perhaps it was the weather, which also caused strange behavior on my part...I apologize to those now blinded by the white of my wintered chest.
I even had one bass cruise up slowly and "nibble" the fly, but he wasn't nearly as big as the one that later exposed a bad knot. Her fight was over before I realized landing a pig on a 3wt was going to be trouble.
Owl's Orange Stingers were the hot ticket again Saturday. These are seriously excellent flies and the gills can't get enough. Nothing else did the trick and I've come here to announce publicly I'll soon be ordering another batch. I strongly recommend getting yourself a dozen.
