Friday Fly Day

Waded a creek today and caught a bunch of spotted bass. I haven’t hit the creeks in a long time, so it was nice to get out wading again. The weather was perfect, winds were light, highs around 90. Water levels are pretty low so the creek was very clear, the bass were looking up too. I threw a popper or slider the entire time and always had action. The strikes were very aggressive too. Nothing of size today, everything was under 1lb, but that didn’t matter much. The snakes are out, saw 3 today, 1 being a small copperhead that was swimming across the creek. Always got to watch out for snakes on these creeks. I finally got a chance to try out some new wading shoes, Teva Sling Kings. So far, so good. No problems with sand or gravel entering the footbed and they were comfortable the entire trip. Looking to get out again tomorrow and hit another creek. These wade trips are good prep for next weekend’s trout fishing.
