Default Re: Favorite bass fly

While my most successful bass flies have probably been the foam mice and frog flies I make, my favorite ones to tie and fish are crayfish flies. There is so much great variation you can do with them and they are a treat to hook up on.

And to add a quick note about weedguards, I personally can't stand them. I feel that I miss a lot of strikes with them and it doesn't justify the annoyance of cleaning the gunk off sometimes. Most people seem to like them, some won't make any bass flies without them. Personal preference and experience I guess.
