Default Bass in Golf Course Pond

I fish in a pretty active golf pond with large bass that love worms. I have been throwing wollys, clouser's, flash minnows and nothing.

What flies work for you and how do you fish them?

Thanks

I jsut discovered a new to pattern at a local fly show that is everything I have been looking for! It's the fly fishing equivalent to a senko. I'll snap some photos this evening and post them

This is probably obvious, but I have to ask, have you tried san juan worm patterns? I fished a small pond in Colorado last week that had smallmouth bass and crappie and an egg sucking leach in a rust color did very well.

try the SJ or "squirmie wormie" pattern (punch that into youtube and you'll see it).

There's no trick to it, just toss it out there and let it sink...then twitch like you would a plastic worm on a bass rod. Some people sneer at worm flies, but who gives a rat's ass.....they catch fish and they're really no different than tying any other flies using synthetic material.

I'd try those clousers again. There are big worm patterns to. If you are far enough South, poppers may still work. Might be to late for them anywhere even slightly North.
