I was dead set to catch one of those stubborn bass today, but my attempt was thwarted when I came across a school of crappie. It seemed like the perfect time to break out my new fly fishing rod. I managed to catch my first fish on it using a wet ant pattern I tied up. I caught 7 or so crappie while I was out and god only knows how many bluegill and red-ear as well. I only kept three crappie and one good bluegill.
