John's experiment pays off

I fished the quarry pond near my home yesterday. It was near perfect conditions for largemouths......overcast skies, plenty of bait in the water, and nearly no wind. I hopped into my Hobie Cat and caught at least a dozen bass and some jumbo bluegills on a variety of topwater and subsurface flies, but the one that payed off the best was John Desjardin's "experiment" fly (see the archives). This fly consistently took the larger bass of the day, and I even had a 12 to 15 pound carp scare the bejezus out of me when it followed it to my feet.

Nice work, John. Your experiment passes all tests in this laboratory.
