Murphy's Law

Fellow Flyfishers,

Here's some timely advice from an unhappy camper. I got a new digital camera this year and usually have it with me on all my fishing jaunts. Last week my brother and I were out on a local farm pond which contains some lunker bass. I had my camera at the ready and was rowing and guiding my brother as he presented his offerings to the fish. We were on the pond in prime time at dusk. Nothing of significance was caught.

The next day I slept in, anticipating fishing late the next evening. After a leisurely lunch I prepared to take my kayak into the pond in search of an afternoon's sport. I took up my camera and then put it back down on the car seat thinking, "Nah, I'll only catch "dinks" at this time of the day." Well of course thanks to good ol' Murphy I caught the bass of a lifetime on my 5 wt. with a buoyant wooly bugger and 6 pound tippet. The fish was 24" long and had a depth of 8" and was surely well over 10 pounds in weight. The fish was strong enough to give me the "Nantucket Sleigh Ride".
Moral of the story: Always take your camera! (Murphy says so!)

Here's a picture of a fly I just tied hoping to attract one of those lunkers again.
