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!

    I'd kill to get out for some panfish or bass on a fly right about now but I'm sure my next fish will come through the ice.
