Last night I made a jaunt over to my favorite golf course fishin’ hole, to top off a nice weekend with some fly fishing. Theres nothing a little bass chasing with a fly rod won’t cure! However, due to an unexpected discovery, I have a bone to pick…

A few notes to whomever is throwing lead jig heads over at my favorite fishing hole:

1. STOP IT! Lead is a known toxin that you wouldn’t have on the walls of you kids rooms or burn in the engine of your car… Why are you throwing it in OUR water? Solution – It’s as simple as this! Lead Free Weights and Jigs go buy them here www.greentackle.com

2. You should know that I pulled this out of the mouth of a 4+ lb largemouth bass last night…


Your lead jig, stuck in my fish!


3. You should also know that I caught said 4+ lb bass on a fly that might be 1/4 the size of your lead monstrosity. Think a Conehead Bunny Muddler in a size 6, but not! To add more insult to your injury… Aforementioned fly was attached firmly to the end of my 5 wt fly line, latched onto my 8’6″ 5wt Orvis TLS Power Matrix, mid flex fly rod.

Thanks for playing along, go buy some lead free tackle… (and maybe, just maybe) I’ll let you come fly fishing with me.
