Busy morning!
😎
on Haskell Lake...
I got my leader/tippet broke again this morning in the same spot I did about a week ago, can`t really judge the size but I`m using a Trilene low vis 4lb test and like last week when it decided to run there was no stopping it. I have had my line broke more here than probably any other place I ever fished, I even had one break a fly rod last year and then the line so there`s some beasts in that little lake. I ened up catching about 16 or so.
The fishing was awesome and the catching was pretty good!

Damn! What size rod you using to get it broke? I usually stay at 5 or 6 when here at home in Okla as the wind causes to many issues for anything lighter for me!

It was a Eagle Claw 5wt, I had that Bass close to the bank when it turned and made a run when the rod snapped and I went for the line and thought I could land it but then it made another run and broke the line just above knot...

The wind was up this morning pushing in a front from the North so I decided to take a break from the fly rods and take out an ultralight. I was dragging an unweighted 4" Zoom finesse worm Texas rigged on a 6th Sense #1 hook through the weed beds, no real size to `em but fun on a ultralight...
