When I hooked into this fish it didn't feel like it was as big as it actually was. She was swimming towards the boat when I decided to boat flip her. When she hit the bottom of the boat, I said to my partner "I just boat flipped a 7 pounder!"
As a young child I fished the Ozarks waters with a spinner rod, years later I've taken up fly fishing and this was my first catch fly fishing. After several trips out trout fishing I was feeling like I wasn't going to ever catch anything. We gave the reservoir a shot at the recommendation of a guy at Rocky Mountain Anglers. It was a cool clear evening, barely any rising but I managed to hook this one. I can't describe the feeling as I brought this one in!!!
I was getting thirsty and was going to leave the lake but I figured take 5 more casts and on the last cast I hooked up and I was sure this was my new personal record bass. Always take the last cast . Fish on !
