I wanted to share a couple photos from a trip to FL last year where I was using the streamer submitted in the swap. Every trip down there I have used that fly for LMB and done well. This is just one of the bass.

What is interesting about this fish is I had broken it off the first morning I was there using the streamer I submitted in the swap then landed it a couple days later with another bunny strip streamer and there was my fly in the corner of its mouth.

Way to get the fly back, Jeff!. I've seen some lunker bass landed in a local pond and we've pulled out a couple of lures stuck in their mouths before releasing.

Thanks, Chris & Tyler! It was great to see you guys again. Wish we could plan an event during warmer months on the water.

fishing with K2 two years ago in NY, I think we pulled more than 10 flies out of a steelie.

thats awesome to rehook the same fish though, crazy story.

Similar story from NY.

I was fishing for steelhead using an egg pattern when I hooked and broke off a fish. I changed out my leader and tied on the same pattern which took a little time due to cold fingers. Take a cast, hook up again but this time I land the fish. Both of my flies were in it's mouth.
