the fly- just yarn wrapped arond a hook! about 5 pound largemouth huge bass! beautiful little bluegill hybrid looks like

With my friend, we went fishing at the local pond with(me) a tusa ayu and him with the 12 foot iwana.And boy, was I suprised by the strength of the ayu! After catching a ton of blue gills, (i stopped counting at 127, and i think he caught more than me!)we spotted a huge bass cruising along the drop off, where it got pretty deep. after multiple casts with a blue killer bug, i managed to get a few strikes and then i hooked her. after about a 5 second fight, unfortunately, she snapped my tippet! Frustrated, and because there were no trees and I was fishing for on specific fish, i switched to only a 13 ft level line 4.5 tied directly to the fly! (not-so-smart and crazy!)After continuing catching bluegills, i was bringing i a real little bluegill when i felt a thud on my line. i put on some polorized glasses to see into the water. i could see the bass right under the bluegill and the bass struck it. after hitting the blue gill, the bass had missed, so it got off and swam away, but the bass turned around and hit the fly. i hooked her, and after what felt like forever, she landed in my wooden tamo. then we caught about 30 or so gills and packed up.

You can fish tenkara with heavy tippets
by: Anonymous

These rods can handle much heavier tippets than 5x. You just have to be careful and let the rod do the work.
