  1. Default Re: Your best smallmouth Fly

    I haven't fished much for Bass, so I was wondering what Lines are being used and what situations ie. ponds, streams, rivers??

  2. Default Re: Your best smallmouth Fly

    I use a 7 wt. floating weight forward old school line. Green Mountain or Scientific anglers. Toss hair mice and frogs to rocks in river and lilly pads an rocks in lakes. In rivers I toss streamers and "trout" flies to catch these speedy athletes.

    Thanks for the help. Now I have something new to try next time I go to the river!

    If you haven't targeted smallies, then you are in for a pleasant suprise! They are much more widespread than trout, are found in some beautiful streams, and fight as hard as anything out there.

    If I am going after smallies I won't leave the house without olive wooly buggers.

    My most consistent produce has been beadhead olive wooly buggers, size 4.

    After that, Sneaky Petes, just 'cause it's fun watching them explode on the surface.

    Good luck!

    I have to agree with that! Smallmouth with a flyrod is as good as it gets....... and the olive buggers have been the best producer for me.

    I love all of those "slider" style popping bugs. Try upscaling them to "musky" proportions. and putting them next to a lilly pad with an 8wt.

    Now that's fun!!!!!
