Today–Sunday April  8, 2018—It remains 7-10 degrees below normal for this time of year. and it seems like spring never arrived or winter refuses to leave. Forecast is for a few fifty deg. days later in the week.. Even tying up a handful of my must have Smallmouth bass for some people couldn’t warm my spirit.

Favorite Smallmouth Flies

Top to Bottom 1. YELLOW Foam Popper, – 2. Root Beer Fly   3.  Black Bunny Leech,  4. Bead Olive Wooly Bugger or Crystal Bugger   5. Chartreuse/White Clouser

These patterns are the ones I use 99.9% of the time. Despite carrying many other patterns these are the ones I count on.
