Made a quick trip toI always discover something new on every trip and yesterday was no exception. I have been experiencing problems in getting distance with the # 6 popper and larger, so yesterday I spooled a new fly line called the Bass Bug from the Mastery Series Scientific Angler. It is a heavier line that will take the wind much better and also move a heavy popper much farther through the air as opposed to casting the tradition fly line. I was using the 6 wt. which worked to perfection for me. The cast was effortless because of the weight of the line propelling the popper so well. Has anyone out there used this line and if so how did you like it performance?
yesterday to try and land some early morning spots with the Boggle Bug black 6 poppers yesterday. I found out right quick that they were having nothing to do with the popper or anything else I threw at them. I landed numbers of bull bluegills which was in bad shape, because of the heavy spawn. This time of year the gills have lost so much weight. The savage fight they put up in the spring is all but gone now because of a slimmer body. The spots are harder to land in the hot summer months too because they go deep and usually don’t come back to shallow water until it starts cooling off in the fall. I am looking forward to landing some quality spots in October and November. Smith Lake
