Re: Favorite bass fly
I don't fish for bass as much as I would like to, but I do love fishing lipped poppers for them.
Here is a recipe from Fishy Fullum's book Fly Tying With Common Household materials:
Hook: Any hook that will accomodate the size of the fish
Thread:3/0 flat waxed to match tail color
Body:3/8 or 1/2 square lengths of balsa wood
Lip: thin balsa wood or plastic
Tail: Your choice
superglue, five-min epoxy
Paint: Fingernail polish
A tough tie, but the fish love it!
