Before the Storm, 7-20-2017

A quick check of the weather app radar showed the storm about an hour away +/-.  It had been a very hot day, and I hoped the cloudcover and barometric pressure change (if there was one) would get the fish feeding.  I got to a local public pond around 7pm.

Who knows if there was any difference...but I did catch some fish.  I flyfished with a blockhead popper, and caught ~6 bass and 2 hybrid sunfish.  The biggest bass measured 19", which is pretty good for Iowa.  The very next fish sprinted for deeper water, and broke my line.

As soon as I saw some huge lightning streak across the sky overhead, I decided it was probably time to head home.
