The Legend Lives On

I went back to Lake Evans this afternoon to test drive my tricked out Toon.

The wind had switched to the West and was blowing at a steady 15mph. The elevated seat was a tad too high but the swivel more than made up for it. I really liked the ability to turn at right angles and change the position of my feet.

I hooked up on a couple of small bass then hit pay dirt. This nice 14" fish took the big green worm and put up a good fight on the ultralight.





On the very next cast (after the photo shoot) I picked up this nice 16 incher.
As you can see, I was almost beached when I found the fish.



Then came the big one..Could it be The Legend? This fish was taking me for a ride. It was stripping out line through a tight drag and moving from right to left at will. I hung on and eventually guided her to the net...


Nice Bass!





I don't think this was The Legend - no sign of lip jewelry.

It was a nice bass by any standard.



These were all nice heavy fish and full of fight. I caught 6 fish in all and lost three or four. I had a couple on the fly rod but wasn't able to boat either one.


I'm still after The Legend.

Some say she is still down there - some say she always will be.

Hi. Came accross this site today - fly reels. I was amazed by the pics in the pdf they're giving away, so I'm looking for someone who knows if this guy is on the level, before I buy this fly fishing training manual.

Hi. Came accross this site today - fly fishing. I believe it's new and I was amazed by the pics in the pdf they're giving away, so I'm looking for recommendations from someone who knows, before I decide on anything from them.
