Blue Gnat Fly
Tied another blue fly - half hitch on a tanago hook secured in place with a dab of epoxy. The wind was up more so than the previous days - the really small fish were hiding from the rougher (relative) water. I did manage to get these two on the "blue gnat" - I had a third small large mouth bass, but as I was pulling it up, it got off the hook.

"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
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
