Today my Dalton and I fished a local pond from kayaks. I spent several hours using various fly patterns. I had one obvious carp tank on a dragonfly nymph, but jumped the gun. The only option was to switch to a spinning rod and use a Rapala original. I landed a pickerel shortly, than both me and Dalton lost a total of five very good fish without making any mistakes. Why? Who knows. Next time ought to be better. We both are going to try to make it out to Moodus Reservoir. Then maybe I will get my big fly rod bass.
