Got out yesterday to look for morels and hit the local pond. No morels yet at my local haunt but the panfish were super aggressive. Little hopper dropper combo with a hippie stomper and a zebra copper john. Had to tune up to my new 5wt and do a little practice casting. Bunch of dink crappie and gills. Most took the dropper but a few tried to eat the hopper. A bug hatch of some kind had them boiling near the surface. Forgot how fun the bigger gills on the fly can be, even on a 5wt, the big ones tug harder than 12" trout. Couple decents ones, nice and fat too.







Hybrids?





This redear was surprise.
