December bassin'

After a couple of unusually warm days here in NW Ohio, I decided to break out the fly rod once again. I'm glad I did! I was using a size 10 lead eye chartreuse and pink woolly bugger and managed to catch two largemouth bass and a bluegill. Not a bad day in December!

A new addition to Auglaize Fly Shop

Here at Auglaize Fly Shop, I'm pleased to give you a sneak peak of a new pattern in our inventory. Auglaize Fly Shop will now be adding the Cypert Minnow to it's inventory.

The Cypert Minnow originated in Texas as a white bass pattern and it's certainly earned it's right to be carried in a Texan's fly box. We feel that it will certainly earn it's keep with Ohio white bass fisherman as well. Besides being highly efficient on white bass, crappie fall for this fly just as easily. I have personally used these flies and caught everything from largemouth bass to longnose gar with them. They're durable and most importantly, they work. Myself, along with other local fly fisherman will give them even further testing this spring during the Maumee River white bass run to truly see what this awesome little fly is fully capable of.

Last fish of the year.

I went out to the ponds one last time with the fly rod tonight before the ice comes. I kept saying my season was over, but we had a nice day today and I needed to get out. It was already getting dark, but I thought I would throw some nymphs for bluegills. Nothing was interested in the nymphs, so I switched to a size 10 chartreuse zonker with a split shot to help get it deep. I made a few casts, then the little fly got smacked. I landed a nice 14 inch largemouth bass. It was a great way to end the season. The pic is quite dark, but the bass is there!
