North Country Angler fly shop in North Conway and talking to Bill the owner. I mentioned that I have not done nearly enough fly fishing. He asked me what I was fishing for next and I said I think I want to catch some rock bass on my way to work in the morning so he sold me a couple of flies. I don't remember what they were called!
So this morning on my way to work I stopped in Center Harbor and tied on the fly and went to after the fish. I bounced this fly all over the rocks that usually produce large goggle eyes and saw nothing.
Then to my right just a few few from the dock I was fishing from I saw a couple of Large Mouth Bass sitting on their spawning bed.

I am not a romantic person so I had no trouble deciding to break up their tryst for my entertainment. So I started bouncing these flies around their heads. They completely ignored me because they were in the throws of passion. But I kept going, and going until finally they had enough and lashed out at my fly in anger. FISH ON!
