T.F.M. Spotting - First Bass On Glass

Jeff Price of J&M Flies recently heeded the call to give glass a try again after a twenty year hiatus with the purchase of a couple Eagle Claw Featherlight fly rods.  He sent along a report with a T.F.M. Spotting Photo Contest photo as well.

Jeff...I'm glad that you are digging fishing fiberglass.  Don't let it be twenty years before you try it again.
