Fly rodding for bass at Riss Lake

Thanks to my buddy Brent Frazee I had the opportunity to fish Riss Lake in Parkville, MO this morning. Got up at 4 AM to fish early and neither of us caught a decent fish ’til 10 o’clock. We could have slept in!

The fly that did this three pounder in was a #2 black sparkle grub. After he (or she) was released he probably told his buddies, “Don’t bite one of those black things! I bit one and the damn thing drug me away by the lip!”

Brent is outdoor editor of the Kansas City Star ,  a newly elected board member of the Outdoor Writers Association Of America, and is  as pathologically crazy about fishing as anyone I’ve ever met.Riss Lake bass
