We had some windy days recently that I chose to flyfish anyway. I caught a bunch of crappie that hit on a microjig/indicator.
Then we had a stormy day when winds reached 60mph. The next day was decent, so I flyfished during lunch, and caught 8 bass from a pond where catching even one or two would be consider a good lunch hour! Most hit a topwater (blockhead popper), and a few hit a dark-colored bunny leech variation.
At one point I set the hook on a bass and my line snapped. Fortunately, my popper came floating to the surface. It was beyond reach, so I tied on a new one. The old one was close enough to try to retrieve, so I started flicking my new popper near the old one, trying to snag it for reuse. I was getting close to that goal, when I watched a large bass rise up slowly, ignore my moving popper, but instead sucked in the old popper floating on the surface, then sunk back out of sight. I thought it would soon spit the popper back out, but it never floated back to the surface. Darn!
