Re: Winter Smallmouth

I have never caught a fish (except for some perch) when the water is falling rapidly after a significant rise. What are y-alls experiences during falling water levels?

Re: Winter Smallmouth

I read some of the abstracts for the tagging studies.

Re: Rio Smallmouth vs Orvis Smallmouth line

Kwb
Is this the line that I heard makes a lot of noise going thru the guides?
Or do I have it confused with another line?
What do you like about the line?
Anything that could be better?
