Aye, the salt flies do wonders on bass, and pike, too. My Champlain trip turned into a "texas-riggin'" expedition as high winds and being on my boss's boat combined to make fly-fishing inadvisable. Got one three-pounder that would've been a lot more fun to catch on a five-weight and wooly bugger. Beautiful day on the lake, beautiful fish.
Rock on, rock lovin' bronzebacks.
