As Dino said in an earlier report they didn't come out to play until they warmed up. Yes, that is yellow nailpolish, I told you my neighbours were irresponsible didn't I.

And this one in the weed

Six Bass and one turtle. Two Bass were caught in weed beds.

Method:...for anyone who cares!

I cast the fly OVER the weed bed into clear water and used a slow draw until the end of my flyline sat on the edge of the weed. So now my fly is hanging down directly in front of the weed bed...are you with me? A few more slow draws and the fly inches it's way up the face of the weed. Bang and scull drag the bugger so you don't get buried.

Nice one Norm, what types of flies were you using?

Range of flies, started with a 10 tungsten head nymph, [not allowed to say peac#$%] hurl body and olive marabou tail and various wholly bugger variants, mainly in olive size 6 B10S.

Ted (griner specialist), where are the blinkin Tuna??

Sounds like a fun method you've got there mate, I can just imagine how awesome it would be when they hit the fly just slowly creeping up toward the surface.....got me thinking I'd probably like to get a cheap fly rod to muck around with, there's a lake near home that would be full of tillies and the like I'm sure...... :whistle: stabbity stab stab :evil:
