Was tired of being sick and was tired of being sick in the house. Took the sun burned boy, the sick three year old and the sick dad to the bass pond. Might as well have fun right!
Little Smallie on a Damsel pattern.

Another smallie on the fly.

Another and Another!!!

Okay we had a blast. The bass were taking everything we through at them. We even had some dry fly action where they came clear out of the water wanting the bug so bad. Nothing very large but all were eager. Did see some cruising the shallows in that 3 to 4 pound range. Have to sneek down there with no kids to get those bad boys :)

Let me do it myself Dad!! Has to do it herself and doesn't want any help. She's three!!

Little Small Mouth Bass.

I have been working on getting to sun and Mr. Bluebird to cooperate. I think I got close this time. Yaaaa!!

Close out of a nice day with the kids. Now I really don't feel good but hey it beats sitting in the house being sick :)

Henrys Lake Hybrid

A close up of a nice Hybrid

Henrys Lake Fly Fishing Saturday

Nice little 3 to 4 lb hybrid to the net. He had lots of spunk and tried to throw me on a barrel role. His bigger brothers did the barrel role move and spit the fly back at me.

This guy all colored up. This guy had lots of unusal coloring I had not seen in a while.

Another Hybrid! Yes it was a good day!

This little Cutthroat on a Chromie! Just trying something new. Didn't last long--got bored and starting throwing the big stuff.

Henrys Lake Fishing

Just a nice evening on Henrys Lake enjoying some fly fishing with Mike.

Just a little something tugging on my fly line.

Mike has a fish on and wasn't sure what side of the boat this story was going to end. It took him all over the boat.
Again just a nice little fish on the fly!

The fish still sporting some spawning colors. They all had some spunk and looked like they had faired well and putting on some wieght.
