after work today i headed straight to the river to see if i could do any better than yesterday. i needed redemption after my brother outfished me 4-0 (all skipjack) on loudon yesterday. i fished white clouser minnows with red eyes, but they weren't your typical clousers. the tiger bass came on one tied with kip tail and the rest were caught on one tied with craft fur. i like the craft fur better and i think the fish agreed. unfortunately i didn't get to keep the kip tail long enough for a fair test... i got excited casting to a big ol carp i had no business trying for and lost it to the tree that jumped out behind me. oh well, heres some subpar pics
i didn't think i'd see one of these until i bought a sinking fly line, so small size aside, this was my favorite. i caught 5 total in the short time i was able to fish in between people walking by (needed room to backcast) and kids running over to talk with me. heard a whole lot of "never seen anyone fly fish here before"
that made me
