Fly Fishing 2015.

It is almost the one year anniversary of me (and my fiancé Emily) learning how to fly fish!  I got out a lot last year (Duluth, MN, Fayetteville, AR, Omaha, NB) but mostly in central Iowa.  Since I fished so much, and enjoyed it, I figured it would be a nice addition to the website.  I am hoping to post every time I go fishing.  I'll share what I used, where I was and (hopefully) what fish I landed.

Ankeny urban pond located off 1st street behind the Wells Fargo.  I went with a couple buddies and we were hoping to land some bass after work.   We got to Ankeny about 7PM and fished until 8:40PM.  The pond was littered with nasty Canada geese.  Action was slow until about 7:30 and then things really picked up.  I landed 10 smaller sized largemouth bass.  Hopefully some of these guys can grow over the summer.  All were catch and release.

5wt, sinking leader, 4x tippet and a black bead head wooly bugger.   I was letting them sink and doing a medium and stead strip pattern in.
