Default Re: Reluctant Bass -OKC

Bedding bass will bite but it's a real waiting game. Don't worry about spooking them the idea is to agrivate them into biting. I tie a fly that swims like a floating worm. I don't have pictures of it but it's maribo, rubber legs and flash. It's about3 inches long behind the hook. The body is much like a wolly bugger, I guess it's a bugger with a long tail. When it's wet it will swim like a very small snake on the surface or you can pause it and it sinks very slowely. It's killer on spring time bass. There is no secret to making this fly, if it has enough length and action a bass that's just moved up to bed will chase it.
