Unreal fight on the 3wt --he killed the Black Gnat
Really orange belly on this one right after I landed him, the Gnat again
This Moth was awesome for me last year early. It has an extremely light landing. These fish are so weary early in the year, so a light presentation is crucial to land the bigger bulls.
Most of the nooks in the lake were covered with pollen, which made it harder to fish on top. A lot of the fish were just swirling under the fly and not really taking it. I lost twice as many as I landed. I did manage to bring home 10. Three were the big males and the rest were females. I broke off twice and never saw the fish, which was super frustrating. As I mention last year this lake has some of the largest bluegill in the state. It is managed well and the caretakers takes great pride in producing super bluegills.
