Best Catch of the Year (so far)
by Vic Velasco
I tied up another Red Tailed Killer Bug and let my son Marlon cast it out on his Kiyotaki. On his own, he spotted a bass hanging out in the shallows. He made repeated casts to it and saw how a different bass came into the same area and made a dash for the fly. The original bass he was casting to wasn't having any of that and after out maneuvering the competitor, Marlon set the hook and got a perfect top lip hookup. He fought the bass for a couple of minutes and was hooting the whole time!!! I couldn't of been happier as he caught this bass!!!!

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
