Bass in November 2011

The water and air temperatures are still up and the Bass are still feeding in the Adur as I found out yesturday and today. The river was running nice and clear so the Bass can easily see the flies. I think natural bait fish patterns seem to work better in clear water and no need to use bright colours as they must look odd to Bass. Only one fish took the fly yesturday and my partner just happened to be there to take this video: http://youtu.be/v6zbDMmPDM Again today only one fish took the fly. It took me by surprise and instead of strip-striking I struck with the rod and failed to set the hook and after a thrash around on the surface the large Bass spat the hook. Here’s hoping for a few more fish before this extended season comes to an end. Tight lines and don’t forget to strip-strike. Howie
