I float tubed a pond in late evening to beat the recent excessive heat using a 7-wt. and a size-2 chartreuse/red Hula Diver. Casts to shaded pockets in the weedline induced explosive strikes and bull-dogging fights accompanied by head-shaking leaps. Strikes came when the stripped diver bobbed to the surface after the tension on the line was released. The exciting action continued until a golden sunset tinged with pink melted into the western horizon.
