Peacock Bass Explosion

A 6-Foot #4 Weight Midge Rod I Refurnish Myself.

Trying out my self-reconditioned bamboo midge rod for the second time.The first time, I blanked terribly.
Today, the action was non stop. More than 20 peacock basses fell for the trick. I was concentrating on a momma peacock bass and lost count of how many I caught. The smaller peacock basses were quicker in grabbing the fly than the big fat momma. Everytime she move in for the fly, some smaller peacock basses got to it first. I was trying to release the smaller ones as quickly as I can to try to get the momma.

My thumb was sore and there were a few bleeding teeth marks.
Really painful when I washed my hands, but it's worth it.

The first one this morning.
The early fish caught the fly.

Another beautiful specimen.
