Re: First Bass of the Year

I know where that is. Gators ain't the problem. Biggest problem is one of the locals who fishes it all the time. He carries a photo album of big fish he has caught and if he ever starts talking to...

Re: Mini Muskies...

The bass are really hard to catch...

Re: Off the charts Pike fishing on the fly

Peter is right. I spent 5 days in the upstate NY catching small 2 to 3 pounders and that is the trip where me and my 8 weight bonded.

For the big boyz? I'm thinking solid 10 wt. And remember the...

Re: Smallmouth on popper.

I feel for you guys up there. It only got up to 55 here in SC today.

Yes, smallies on top are my favorite and yes, stripes are nipping at their heels.

But don't think I'd turn down a LM...

Re: Budget bass outfit

Did that on a smallmouth float on the New river. Worked great and made a HUGE difference. Took a while to screw up my courage to do it 2 miles into an 8+ mile float.

Re: How would you fish this river?

That spot has kayak/canoe written all over it. Looks like you could paddle upstream a mile and then drift back down hitting the good looking holes and structure.

I agree about bigger flies. Take...

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.

I liked Deceivers...

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.

For example, last year in March it was overcast, cool, and when we started, the spin fishing...

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.

Great action the last week of May.

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.
