We started the day fishing bass on a lake. The water's getting cold, and while there were plenty of fish around, most of them were just interested in following our flies to see what was up. We had follows from bass and pike, but were having trouble getting them to commit. A few ate, but not many.
Then we decided to try our luck for musky. Nathan managed to find this stocky, aggressive fish hiding in a log jam. It blew out and missed his fly the first time, but Nathan put the fly right back in front of its face while it was trying to figure out where its prey had gone. Gulp.
