Default Bass fishing in new england

Hi all
as you can see im new to this site.
ive been lurkin a bit and have picked up some usefull info
great resourse, and great people.

anyway.
i have been banging around flyfishing for several years but with no consistancy
im currently outa work for a few weeks and have had alot of free time so out comes the old fly tying kit and fly rods.. a new fishing Lic and im good to go..... well mabye not..
im yet to land a bass.... blue gill after bluegill after bluegill.

but no bass

ive tried all sorts of various patterns, and some stuff i just whiped up in the corse of a few beers.

again.. blue gill after bluegill. now dont get me wrong ill take them espically over getting skunked, but i wanna bass.

i saw some pics in another thread a guy had some sort of leech.. but i cant find a pettern or what its made of anywhere.....

spinning deer hair is not my strong area..

any suggestions would be greatley appriciated.

thanks all

Ray

i believe that the fly you're talking about was in another bass post. and they called it a ddh leech. if that's the right fly here's a link to a recipe and somewhat step-by-step details.

let me know if that helps out.

well heres mt first attempt at one of them cool leeches.
my photography is not as good as darkcahill, and the flys a little rough around the edges,m but this is the first time using this technique.
i drove up to the closest fly shop about 45 minn away and got the materals i needed to tie this up....

Not to bad for the first one. I pm'd you the step by step. One thing I would suggest is to buy a small metal brush, the kind you use to clean batteries. Looks like a toothbrush on steel steroids and brush the fibers out. That is the most important step you could do. Other than that it doesn't look to bad. Hope you catch some bass.

Nice job on that fly. Used the same color the other day. My son outfished me like you wouldn't believe. Had a fun time landing Smallmouth from 15-19 inches.

Looks like I have to bone up on my techniques if I want to outfish him.
