The smaller size Foam Grasshopper coupled with the Two Weight fiberglass fly rod did well this evening. Caught twelve bass and lost several others. No Bruisers – largest went about 13″. Still lotta fun as even these little Bass put a great bend in the rod!
PS: We used a Size 12 Hook and scaled down the Foam Grasshopper to fit the hook. Also, noticed with the weight of the hook and the rubber legs, the fly tends to sink instead of float which seems to trigger strikes at least these last three trips we have gone out on.
