Spent an hour on the pond

Been feeling a little under the weather the last few days. I got to spend a little time on the pond this evening before the wife called me to eat. I managed two small bass,two big bream and a smaller bream. I've decided to get serious with my fly rod this year. I realize I can catch more fish even though smaller they are a blast on a 5 wt fly rod plus I can carry all my lures in my breast pocket. Started tying my own bugs and spiders. I caught all these on the same little spider. When I walked down to the pond this evening there was two geese and they went into the water and swam to the other end of the pond. A large bass,looked to be 18"-20" long followed them across the pond just under the surface. I guess he was trying to figure out whether he could get one in his mouth. I sure would have liked to tease him a little but I didn't have my fly rod rigged at the time.

is about 1-1/2 acre with bass,bream,crappie and some catfish. I fish the local reservoirs but when I want to really catch fish I fish my private pond. How lucky can one man get?
What kind of bass are those?|
