ASS fly. As the sun began to cook us, we drifted along a treeline and I finally was able to hook up on a 1.5 pound bass. This would prove to be the only fish for the day. Throughout the day I switched from my T&T 5weight to my Sage XP 8 weight. With the larger rod I tried various large patterns including a new crayfish pattern I've been tying up lately but no fish was willing to be the first one hooked up on that fly. Unlike my other trip on another buddy's boat, we had no significant issue with the craft. It nice to be on a proper boat with a trolling motor, fish finder and comfortable seats unlike most rental boats I'm used to fishing out of.
