I own a TFO Pro in 8wt overlined with a 9wt bass bug taper...you can cast small children with it.

I really like the Pro and highly...

Check out this post. It was about smallmouth flies but since I use the same for both species, this will do. Anyway, my four favorites.

Re: Lean green eating machine.

Nice! Love when those things charge your fly from 10 feet way showing a big wake. Hard part is not jerking the fly out of their mouths when they explode on the fly.

Very underrated fish.

Re: Flies for fast river smallies

I'm guessing from the first 2 letters in your screen name that you are in SC?

I'm located near Greenville and have fished most of the rivers in SC for smallies and LM. I do really well on white...

Ross, I too am in the upstate and have fished Goodale about 4 times.

When the pickerel are biting, it can be quite a hoot and there are bigger ones in there.

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.

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.
