August 17, 2011 – Joe Pool Lake – Loyd Park – Bowman Creek

The wind was supposed to be higher than normal, so I decided to go to the north end of the park.  Decided to take my fly rod only, to cut down on some of the stuff I would have to carry out.  The little green sunfish were everywhere in the creek.  Most were near trees close to the bank.  Found a nice bass on the shady side of one of those overhanging trees, and another nice bass on a shady bank.


I saw the biggest GD snake I’d ever seen while fishing.  I was at least 6 feet long and appears to have been eating very well.  I watched it crawling along the bank and started wondering what it was eating over there.  I noticed something large and green on the bank, sitting in the exposed roots of some of the trees.

I took a closer look and noticed it was a huge frog just sitting there.  Look at the top of the picture, just to the left.  I thought it was a kid’s toy, but it started moving around.  The snake passed above it and just kept going.
