Fly-fishing for bass continues to be one of the fastest-growing segments of our sport. There are several reasons, but the most important are that bass are more fun to catch and are more widely distributed than trout and other coldwater fish. Bass get a bad rap; they are not witless, gullible gluttons, but actually become selective feeders faster than trout. Bass have also been shown to have higher IQs than trout, so your imitations must closely match the naturals on which they feed. Bass flies have undergone a major evolution in refinement and are now on par with the quality and design of the flies tied for coldwater species, like trout and salmon. Renowned fly tier and innovator Skip Morris guides you through the unique world of bass flies, including basic techniques & tools; bass-fly materials & hooks; flaring & shaping hair; tying snag guards, eyes, tails, & legs. Fly types include: Floating, Sinking, Divers, Insects & Crayfish, and Panfish. So give the trout and salmon a break, go catch some feisty bass on a large, noisy, and active.
