At the second pond, I fished for about an hour before my buddy Jay showed up. I'd caught just one bluegill. He said the barometric pressure was really low (?), which generally means poor fishing. Nevertheless, he started catching bluegills pretty frequently on a little fly rod popper! I didn't switch, and consequently my catching didn't improve. Jay decided to leave, probably exhausted from catching so many fish trying to teach a dumb pupil (me) how to do it. Then in the last hour, I caught a bass, a pumpkinseed, and 4 more bluegills (doing it MY way) before I decided to give it up. Caught 3 times as many fish in the last hour as in the previous 5 hours!
