Fished Valley Mills with my buddy Kristian Cole from Tailwaters fly shop and we were all fly rods all day.  He was on topwater frogs most of the day and I was on my trusty black ugly wooly bugger.  Ugly because I tie them myself and I think the worse I tie them and the uglier they are the better the bass like em.  We caught some nice fish today for the fly rod.  Big was a certain 7 (maybe an 8 - no scale) and two good bass around 4 pounds.  The rest were two pounds plus and 8 culls but even the cull fish were pretty good looking hard fighting fish.  In addition we caught about 16 plate sized blue gills - some that fought harder than some of the bass.  Caught most the fish along the shorelines.  Kristian was catching them shallow on top and I was catching them off the shorelines but out a little deeper.  Great day on the water and we only got rained on just a bit.
