Recent rains have ponds in great shape. Float tubing near shaded weed lines with a 4-weight, floating line, and Bully Spiders produced an evening of steady action. Eight- and nine-inch bluegills put a smile on my face. A countdown of 5 consistently put my flies right in front of the fish. Casting to a largemouth bass that was chasing a dragonfly closed a fun trip with a 15-inch bottle rocket. Gotta love August!
