Went down to the local pond for the first trip of the year today after school with the temperature being a balmy 50* and decided to bring along with me a new fly I had made a few weeks ago, it's a bit like a cross between a Zonker and a Woolly Bugger and it really brought 'em in today. I caught 15 fish in the half hour I was able to be on the water and dozens more strikes. I thought it was interesting how all my bites came just inches under the surface, you'd think the fish would be lethargic at this time of year but I guess spring is getting underway. I even got a bite with the fly on the surface waiting for the marabou to soak up some water and sink! Anyway, I'll be making a few more of these flies, I'll try and get a picture up soon with a recipe if anyone's interested, but for now my Woolly Zonker is doing just fine and my season is off to a great start. It's about time!!
