Sea bass on river Aljezur in Algarve

Farther down the river there is a large pool. Here the current slows down. I cast a good 20 meters, in the middle of the lagoon and start stripping a chartreuse/white Clouser. When the fly is five meters from me, I see a big shadow following it. It is almost an arm long. I speed up the stripping and the bass seems to go for it, but the strike is void! The fish is gone, my next attempts do not manage to lure the big guy back.
