Game On:


It’s somewhat sublime to be pitching a fly towards the grassy bank of someone’s back garden then have peacock bass explode into life as you draw the fly away.  And once they feel a hook point all hell breaks loose.  Seriously, nothingSDC10766 prepares you for when a large bass ravages your fly-an arm wrenching jolt quickly followed by a writhing mass of green and yellow that’s doing its best to bury you in nearby snags.  A serious bout of side strain and slice of good luck is needed before you can finally admire what is surely one of the most striking species of fish we care to pursue with fly.
