Now with the kids back at school and the temperatures coming back to levels more tolerable I feel the tug of a gill on the line bringing me back. Even the snakes have started to come out of their aggressive mood and retreat back into the tall grass.
After the bass I decided to have a little fun with the small sunfish that were darting back and forth, probably dodging the same bass that had took my wooden dowel. I tied on a #14 caddis and gave a flick of the fly out to the edge of a small grass bed. The result was possible the smallest sunfish I have ever got on a fly. The tinny catch might be considered bait in most circles, and the truth is I have cast larger flies than this guy, but for me it was the most memorable of the day.
