Two Years Later

two yr. old fish - image
This picture of a smallmouth bass was taken in June of 1998.  The fish have been
in the pond for about 1 3/4 years now.  This fish is about seven inches long, healthy
and strong.  We know they're strong from catching and releasing them with a fly
rod and barbless flies.  We only caught enough to evaluate their health.
Like about fifty. :-)

At this point we are starting to supplement their food supply with fathead minnows.
We have a small pond of about a tenth of an acre or so located in another field. We
are using it to grow the fathead minnows.  The pond with the smallmouth bass was
also stocked with fathead minnows a while back.  Keeping the food supply
at a maximum will turn out to be our biggest obstacle.
