I think the best bass fishing season is just around the corner, but have not had good chances to go lately. I checked and cleaned my old Phillipson glass fiber rods in my room. These great rods are timeless.

I have been interested in this Finetrack water repellent underwear so I visited a shop to pick up a sleeveless one. They recommend wearing it under a regular base layer, so I combined it with a Patagonia capilene. I wore it during a regular run of about 13 km and it felt excellentl. However, it may be difficult to wash.

I got one bite on a Heddon Lucky 13 in D (Dace color), but the fish on the other side of my line easily ditched. Only tooth mark was left on the body of the lure. I have often felt light stiff shoulders since this spring, and am now trying shorter rods. Still very poor at using such rods.

The starter was Heddon Zara II in GRA as I tried last time. Tiny fish picked it a couple of times, but they were not hooked. I changed it to Pico Pop with a feathered tail hook, and then this fish raised a spray of water. I set a hook sharply from a wobbling floating tube and finally caught her. Nice bass, 46cm in TL.
