Re: heavy duty bass flies

They look great and durable. My only concern when it comes to my bass flies are weight. I used to throw really big cork poppers and between the weight and the wind resistance of the cupped face...

Re: Fly orientation.

I would echo Dan's sentiments. The fly should be tied in the manner in which you want it to "swim". For example, a Clouser is tied to ride hook point up therefore if you tied it olive over white,...

Re: Carp Flies for Mass Carp?

Reynolds and Befus swear by the clouser swimming nymph. I have had some good success with black wooly buggers myself. Good luck... gotta love brown lining!

Re: Bass!!!!!!!!!!

If you are throwing a 5 or 6 weight, try Gurglers instead of large bugs. They can make just as much of a top water presence but are much much easier to cast eve on a 5 wt. Good luck!

I fish a very murky urban stream near my home for smallies and this pattern has worked really well for me. Not sure if it has an official name or not as I took things I liked from various other...

Re: am i the only one that doesnt like to catch fish with teeth?

117, I second McFly... buck up and bring some hemo's, boga grip, shark gloves, etc.... if none of that works, you may want to stick to blue gill and sunnies! :-)

Re: Frog Imitation

I will second the earlier comment. I am a huge fan of gurglers. They are easy to tie, inexpensive, and most importantly you can cast them much easier than most of the traditional foam popper...

Re: Smallies

I have fished them both on a 5 and 6 weight. The only reason I prefer my 6 weight is that I can throw weighted flies further and cover more water especially if you get a windy day.
