Two Weight Glass Bass

Not knowing what will take the fly or lure next certainly has to be one of the neatest aspects of fishing.  Matt Benett of Living Waters Fly Fishing found this out earlier in the summer on Brushy Creek and sent along a couple photos of his surprise.

Matt...way to make that F2 bend.
