Had one of those moments at a local pond yesterday.

 

As I'm heading into the water I come across a guy with a spinning rod. We chat for a minute to see how things are going. he informs me that he's been there half an hour and hasn't had a bite....the water's too warm for the fish to go after anything.

 

I nod and thank him for his help, say I'll give it a try anyway and head into the water.

 

I let loose with the fly. Third strip and WHAM!!!!!

 

Get the fish in and the fly back out.

 

WHAM!!!!

 

Get a little more fight on this one. Get him in, get him off the hook. Put together a nice cast and land the fly right into the shade.....

 

WHAM!!!!!

 

I look over and the guy is shaking his head.

 

"Sorry man...."

 

"I'm *expletive deleted* going home...."

 

Somedays you're the bug....somedays you're the windshield.

Yeah.....that spot can be fickle. I've walked away from there skunked plenty of times.

 

It was nice to see the time I'd spent getting skunked there paying off. My recollection was that it's a spot that does well when it gets really hot, but not always with a spinning rod.
