I love poppers!

Recommended Posts

Finally!!! I caught some fish. My first fish on a fly rod was caught today. I started on my home river, but with no luck for two hours, I decided to move to a tiny pond I have been fishing since I was a kid.

 

I bought some poppers today, and when I got to the pond, I tied on a yellow one. After about three or four casts, a bass hit and I reeled him in...which wasn't hard because he was only about 6 or 7 inches long. I caught another bass the same size and a sunfish. After that, I started loosing light and bats started swooping at my fly during my false casts, so I decided to call it a night. Not a great story, but at least after two months of getting skunked I finally caught a freakin fish.

 

Plus, catching anything on topwater is about the most fun you can have in my opinion.

 

Cheers,
