I've been staying close to home this year.  Flyfishing primarily panfish in June and now LMB in July.  Since I also like paddling and portage in lakes, I've been fishing mostly fishing carry-in glacial kettle lakes.

The topwater bite has been really good this year.  My favorite fly is a deerhair Dahlberg diver with a rabbit strip tail:

This one had a fish following:

I have to admit that top water smallies are my favorite.  Have a lot of top water baits but am partial to the pop r, it's deadly.

This fish ate a topwater bait about 10' from the boat yesterday

I was going to say, a few days ago, that a musky or pike topwater eat will make you smile for the rest of your life.

Even if you miss the hookset.
