Spent a couple days on the Delta again this year for the Bass N Fly Challenge. I gave a talk for the Tracy Fly Club on Wednesday night. Then pre fished with Robert Johnson on Thursday. Competition on Friday the 21st. There were 44 teams this year. Way to go team Bass N Fly!I love all the funky houses and crazy old run down boats and stuff floating all around the Delta. It's like a whole different world out there.
For those who might recognize this slough and are wondering, we did NOT fish here during the comp. Just poking around in pre fishing and checking out all the trippy houses.
Ripping around the Delta with Robert on his bad ass bass boat is always a good time.
Fishing conditions for the comp were tough this year. Super windy. We only managed to get two fish in the boat on game day. I hooked three others but couldn't seal the deal. One was a monster. It was so windy Robert had to just control the boat while i fished a wall. I hooked up a good fish and pulled him out from some weeds. It took a huge jump right in front of the boat and shook my fly in the air. Robert and i both let out a yell. I fell to my knees on the deck of the boat. The knee of my jeans ripped out and my oakley sun glasses fell off my head and i watched them sink. It was basically a huge bass kick to the nuts. It would have been the big fish of the day for the comp. Oh well, that's how it goes. Makes you hurt but keeps you wanting to come back for more. See you next year bass lips.
