Tested a two piece micro fly rod yesterday; Damsel Fly Variant worked well; but, may need to go with a size 14 hook as the fish were smaller compared to the pond fished the other day. Yesterday's Video.

Tested out a new fly pattern - no name for it yet. Caught a bass and lost a bass, then switched to damsel flies and caught Bass, Bluegill, and Sunfish. Good to have the fly pattern in the fly box for days like these... Fun stuff! Today's Video.

Been awhile but decided to give this pattern a go.... Lost the fly to a snag but did manage to catch a few fingerling bass! Video Snippet.

Mixing it up this round with two of our passions - #ukuleletime and #flytying ...watched the move - "The Mule" directed and starring Clint Eastwood! Liked the song by Toby Keith - "Don't Let the Old Man In".  Decided to add it to a quick tie video of the Damsel Fly Variant we used the other day to catch bass at a local pond!
