Black Crappie Size 12 Beadhead Killer Bugger

After a good Saturday I headed out this morning with high hopes. A drove to Shawnee Mission Park which has a nice lake. I had caught a few crappie there last year and was hoping to repeat. I went to the same place, had a hit on the first cast and had a fish within a minute. I was so happy.
The wind came up, a front came through and the fish stopped biting, everywhere. My plans for the rest of the day simply fell apart.

Still, a five species weekend and a lot of fun. Working on the Killer Bugger Challenge gives a focus to what I would be doing any way. Plus no second thoughts about fly selection.
