RE:largemouth on the fly
A subject near & dear to my heart.
Here on the South Shore ponds I use my #4 (Sage)#6 (my old Fenwick) or # 8 (Diamondback Backwater) depending on the pond. My favorite fly is a small yellow balsa popper #10.
Of course one of the trout ponds I'm hitting tomorrow is where a black 2/0 Dahlberg Diver disappeared as soon as it hit the water & broke off within 20 seconds. I figured the fish would have died and went back for several days looking for my fly & to find out what the fish was. In the last 7 months I haven't found him yet
I have a Whitlock video (whoever I loaned it to - please return) where he is fishing a pond in FLorida I think, gin clear water, and he is pulling in some REAL MONSTERS. That's what I would like to try some time.
