Quick Trip to Bethany Lakes … Feeder Creek! #flyfishing

By / March 8, 2017 / Bethany Lakes, Bluegill, Sunfish

Fished Bethany Lakes on a quick trip using fly fishing gear to test a new pattern – Near Guad. It’s a combination of the Near Deere and the Guadalupana. Had one Bass look at it, else no takers. Switched to a smaller Guadalupana and caught a Sunfish and a Bluegill, then put on a Griffith’s Gnat and caught several more… fun time!
