Yesterday I fished some warm water ponds near my home for bass and pan fish. I managed quite a few little guys, but none of the fat one I was looking for. I sadly also hooked a painted turtle. That always makes me feel terrible, even though the probably feel about as much as the fish do. As the sun began to set hundreds of insects came out, but I was sadly without the right flies to capitalize on the opportunity. Perhaps I will return in a few hours.
