Yesterday after work, I picked up my two fishing buddies (my son and his friend) and we hiked in to one of the pristine ponds in town. It's a remote pond on town land that sees little fishing pressure but is filled with largemouth, panfish, perch and pickerel. I first tried a brown woolly bugger, tossing this for about 1/2 hour with no takes. Midges and some stones where coming off in the greatest numbers so far this year, but only saw a couple of rises. The water is still a bit cold for bass so I decided to try one of the woven nymphs tied earlier this year.

We fished for another hour with no luck, but I feel vindicated that the woven nymphs will catch fish. Never really doubted this, but their is confidence and proof.

Happy Easter all!
