Mousin’ for Bass

Sunday evening I took the family out to do some fishing at a local pond. I decided to try out a mouse pattern that I came up with for the Loop USA fly tying contest.

I tied on a Zara Spook JR for my wife and my daughter wanted to take pictures so I gave her my phone.

Before I had my fly tied on my wife had her first bass of the evening.

My kid had to capture me fishing.

A few casts later and I had my first bass. (Maybe it’s the new Skinny Water Culture hat!)

First bass on the mouse!

As the sunset the bite just got better!

Before long the wife and kid had took shelter from the bugs in the car as the moon came out.

I kept on fishing and the bass just kept biting.

For something I threw together on a whim my mouse works pretty well.

I’m looking forward to many more evenings mousin’ into the dark.
