Easter Sunday Rises
Posted a couple of these pictures in some Facebook groups yesterday...but what the heck, figured I'd put them on the Mothership too. Weekend weather has been really "iffy" to say the least the past few weeks, but I did sneak out for a few hours on Easter Sunday. Didn't find any eggs, but did find some bass and bluegills. They were a little sluggish in the cooler weather, but still generally happy to rise to a well placed fly.
Sadly, didn't bring the best fighting fish to hand. Had a bass on that put a really deep bend in the Tenkara USA Sato. It was making the pulled taut level line vibrate and sing like a violin string. (If you've had a large fish on a level line, you probably know what I mean.) But after a three or four minute fight it went right into some thick weeds and other pond muck getting all kinds of snagged up...until the tippet popped while I tried to horse it out. Better broken tippet than a rod tip. It happens.
