Newport Bait Barge 11/2/18



Took a quick pm session at the NPH bait barge which is closing for the winter on November 13th and found the Calicos and Sandies fighting to chug the 4" yak hair sardine fly during a fish a cast 90 minutes;

no idea on the fish count but there was a lot, not huge with maybe 2 legal sandies and 1 legal calico but they had attitude. The water flat calm, crystal clear and a pleasant 68 degrees. Gear was an Echo Geko 4/5 weight rod, this is not a child's rod, a WF5F line, a 10' custom welded T8 -T14 material sink tip and a 10 ' 15 lb fluo leader. The boys wanted the fly to sink then wacked it on the drop after a short slow strip. Mucho Bendo......
Blown away by the camera on the iphone XS so please forgive my indulgence but fish look so much better in the water....
