This is a continuation of my Bluegill story/entry.
Right after I caught my Bluegill, I got right back to fishing and it wasn't long before I had my second species on a Black Killer Bugger fly. It was the same 18 sized fly that I had just caught the Bluegill on.

After letting the bass tire out I was bringing him to shore when he had one more burst of fight and went right into a clump of algae. But thankfully I was able to still pull the little guy towards me along with a huge clump of algae without breaking the tippet or without him popping off.

Second species on a Black Killer Bugger Fly.... Largemouth Bass. And though he is small, he was still a big catch for me.
