With the cloud cover and light winds on Saturday morning the conditions were perfect to throw some topwater flies. The fish where up in the newly flooded brush and grass from the rains the days before. I caught a lot of nice large mouth on a frog pattern. Is there anything better than watching a bass explode on a topwater fly? My day was cut short due to my rod breaking. I know the TFO BVK 4weight was not the rod of choice for throwing flies to big bass, but since it is a new rod I have been using it a lot and testing its limitations. Trying to keep a bass from diving into a brush pile was its match. Good thing TFO is located just down the street from me and I will get it replaced and put it in the closet till I go trout fishing; a much more suited fish for this rod.
