Yesterday's practice casting of the 6wt TFO Fly Rod was a fun time at Bethany Lakes. But, was sidetracked by a school of bass lurking in the hole by the drainage pipe in the Back Pond. After 11 fishing flies later, found a pattern that worked... caught one Bass but fouled hooked it.

When up the road to Bethany Creek Pond, had another Bass take but broke off. Did notice the Bass was sulking near the pond's brick wall. Able to grab it by hand, and then move it closer to the water fountain where the water had more flow and aeration. Released it with no issues!

Really like this setup. Going to plan to use this in place of the 5wt... retired to the closet after many fun seasons!

Went up to Waterloo Park again this morning.  Temperature was 27 degrees when we got there at 7:15 a.m. and water was freezing in the rod tip guide as I reeled in.  Didn't get even one bite.
About 8:00 a.m. people started coming in for the trout derby that officially started at 9:00 a.m..  

As things got crowded, I left about 8:30 a.m. to drive up to Denison Dam to try my hand at striper fishing again.  Struck out there too.  I did see two striper caught - they were hooked right up next to the turbine outlet wall.

I stopped in at the trout pond on my way home and saw several people with limits lining up at the trout derby station for weigh in.  I didn't do any fishing though as I had to get back home.

At least Waterloo Pond was stocked yesterday - I was beginning to wonder.  The trout seem to be very sluggish until the sun starts shining on the pond and the water warms up.

Probably headed up there tomorrow morning for another round.

Near Deere Give Away went well - Congrats to the Winner! With the weekend here, not sure where or when we plan to go fishing. But, might as well prepare for it. Put an OPST Commando Head with a coated running line and Airflo extra fast sink tip on the 6 weight. Hope to see how it casts with the heavier shooting head and coated running line compared to the 5 weight that has a lighter shooting head and mono running line.  Will post video of how it does while out and about fishing! More to come!

No fishing today but did get the chance to post a video to answer the mail... question on what fly reel we use. From the jest of the video, we hope we answered the mail... Echo Ion Fly Reels!
Why we like Echo Ion Fly Reels.
