Yes. They eat dragonflies. Or at least try to. One pushed my dragonfly a foot with the body splayed across his mouth, unable to fall in and gain purchase. So tie them soft, maybe, so the fsh can clamp down on it.

Hey what about dragonflies? Do bass eat them beehotches? I see a lot of them over the bass waters I fish, and I see big bass becoming air born at times, but I can never tell if they're going after the dragonflies or some other unseen bug.


Oh yeah, they will launch on dragons in mid-day a lot of the time. I remember vividly just floating a stretch of river once, not having a fly rod, and seeing 4-5 pound hogs just catapulting themselves after dragons.

These were the biggest fish again, just like the white fly hatch, and that day you caught nothing near the size of the fish we saw flying out of the water even on good bait-hellgrammites and stonecats. Once these bass hit 18, 19, 20, 21 they really become masters at switching on the easiest food source. These 18 to 20 inch fish I was catching were in this weird pocket every night at exactly the same time, almost down to the minute when the flies reached a good blanket on the water, then they start rising. Pretty wild.

I eat everything in site.

Lost 80 lbs. I have a very physical job.

I was found nom nom nom...ing on that bass minutes later. Sorry to say. Needed energy for job.

Bass was caught on the Yellow Muddy Conodowissonpocostoga River in PA.

It flows through Yorcumberlankadam County.

Teaching a buddy to fly fish tonight at a pretty large private lake. Never fished it before and hoping to have some pictures to add to this thread.

Hope I didn't disappoint. Only fish I caught as I was teaching for a while.

Roughly about 18.5" estimating in the 4-4.5lbs range

Landed on a gem of a trout stream. 19 inches. Largest one I have ever put in the net. This guy has been loading up on wild brown trout.

Nice. So were you targeting smallmouth on this trout stream or was he an "accidental" catch? Did you catch him on some type of streamer? Baby brown trout?

It was an accidental on purpose catch. Went there for trout and saw him.
