I spent a little while with an Ausable bomber, and it got me a couple Smallmouth and Sunfish. I wanted to gradually use bigger flies, but saw a big rise for a bee and switched to a stimulator. It was refused by a good 17 inch bass, and then taken by his offspring
The next change was to a popper, which produced some more smallmouth. Just before leaving I heard a plop behind me, and something with grass attached swam parallel to the bank. Upon investigation I found it to be a painted turtle, and decided to catch it. It hissed a lot, and was covered in leeches. I removed the parasites and set the agitated reptile down. It gave one last his before quickly swimming off.
