Default Re: river smallmouth advice

Harry Murray has posted several podcasts on smallmouth fly fishing here:
harry murray podcast | Fly Fishing Podcasts with Harry Murray

These are great for people new to chasing smallies.
I also saw someone had recommended the Murray's Heavy Helgrammite. Jeff Murray showed me how to fish the fly using the swing nymphing technique which is killer in between deep ledges. There is an article on it here:
Fly-Fishing Techniques "For Beginners - 101, Part 45 FAOL

I like seeing the plug for Harry's book. He taught me to tie flies and catch smallies in the Shenandoah. Great man.

In the summer I love Shenk's White Minnow Streamer #8. I tie in just a little "flash" and swim it a little with the rod tip.
