I got a phone call that I could go in and fish a pond. The only request was that I hike in and not drive. When I got to the field I could tell why. Most of the field is fairly hilly and everything was very dry. My guess was that any rain did not soak in so driving might have caused a grass fire. I knew that this pond is really open. The trees are at least 50 yards from the pond with very few bushes around. It's really hard to snag the big ones here. I took two 3 weights with me. I put on a black fur tailed leech and a yellow boa yarn fly.
