Tim, I think you may be our first member from your

great State!

Only had the opportunity to fly fish for Bass in a couple of locations (several years ago) in Northern Calif. A town house project Joan and I lived in had about a 3 acre pond, fountain, etc., in the middle there off (and right off our back deck).

Pond was stocked with bass and about as close as you could get to the back door. Best 'fishing' was after dark with a Colman lantern at my feet for a bit of light and a 6 wt fly rod with surface poppers. Couldn't see didly on the water ... but the bass sure could here the 'bug' being stripped across the water.

Nothing large (maybe 2-3 pounds at best) but still a blast in the pitch black.
