Re: lost all my panfish flies in a horrible i misplaced them accident.

I feel your pain. I flipped my canoe in fast water a couple of years ago and lost all of my bass flies and broke my favorite rod.

Came close to drowning too.

Re: 5 Weight Bass Flies?

I used a 5 wt overlined with a 6 wt line for years but like others have said, the 7wts and over can handle bigger flies and more situations (thick weeds, wind, etc) than a 5wt.

Re: A Beginners Journal

You got that right brother!

Keep at it and one day you will catch 15 and say it was slow. What is better is when you catch more and bigger than your spinning/bait casting buddies. It can happen.

Re: New to fly fishing for bass

One thing I have found with LM and SM, sometimes throwing something really crazy can save the day.

Re: When and where for small mouth?

I spent a week in the NY Adirondacks and the smallie fishing was excellent. You also have the possibility of catching LM and pike also. Lots of fun.

Re: hooks for largemouth

If I'm tying time consuming flies like hair bugs, I pay they extra and go for Gamagatzu B210 like mentioned in a previous post. Those thing are sharp and extremely strong.

Re: Count'n the days!

Nice videos! Me likes the music on the last one.

That first video, that fish must have jumped over 6 ft.

Re: Smallmouth Bass line

I was going to recommend the SA Bass bug taper (Mastery?) which I have used for 15 to 20 years. I think I'm on my fourth one now. However, I just looked on SA website and my favorite line is no more!...
