    I hit one of my favorite ponds with the 2wt CT for about an hour this evening.
    About 10 of these to hand and about 10 9-11" Bass. Not bad for an hour I think.
    The Gills fight way better than the little bass!

    Hey Patrick, what kind of flies do you use for Blue Gills?

    Isn't that a red-ear sunfish? Gills look a bit different.

    How is the 2wt with the small bass? I have been thinking about grabbing a 2 or 3 wt but was worried about not being able to cast small poppers with it.

    You're correct, Ive. It's a pumpkinseed. Redears look more like bluegills.
