Crick Bassin` - Video

Chasing Smallies in the Crick!
I got an opportunity to chase some smallies in a great lakes region creeks. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT pass up these opportunities.

Growing up I use to play in creeks. I was always surprised by the seemingly never ending list of species that one could find in water that does not even appear possible to maintain aquatic life. It amazed me to no end how such vulnerable creatures could survive through raging floods and hot summer droughts, and yet still thrive.
I've found dace and darters, chubs and suckers, bluegills, sunfish and the sometimes carp. But even as a creek exploring youngster I was on the hunt for bass. Decades later, every time I drive pass a river, stream or creek I still dream about stalking bass!
On this day, in this short video I fished with a Sage Method 690-4 paired with a Waterworks Lamson Force SL #2 equipped with a Scientific Anglers Amplitude Anadro fly line. Admittedly this was small water for this distance capable setup but I wasn't aware what I'd was going to fish before hand so I went with a rod that could adapt over a wide range of uses. The Sage Bass II Series Smallmouth rod would have been a great fit.
The fish were eager to check out a popper and made many close inspections of a feather game changer but in the end it was my personal creation no name bass fly that brought the most to hand.

Keep it real,
Greg
