This week’s Topwater Tuesday brings us to a remote alpine lake for epic largemouth bass on the fly.
Fly fishing for bass is one of my favorite summer pastimes, but few videos capture the thrill and joy of the pursuit quite like this one from Catch Magazine. This video is a few years old now, but it's an absolute classic. In this 5 minute film, the legend Brian O'Keefe revs his motorbike, heads to an alpine lake and catches enormous largemouth bass from a float tube in a torrential downpour. We mentioned he was a legend right?
Some of the underwater shots are outstanding and in typical Topwater Tuesday fashion, the topwater takes are simply awesome. There's a reason this video has over 1 million views.
