I have been having luck with the classic green and white clousers as well, just making them smaller.

I would suggest tying deceiver patterns. Alot of saltwater baitfish patterns can be used to catch bass. Tie a deciever in the standard colors (white/chartreuse, white/blue, white/grey/green) and epoxy some holographic eyes on them. Fairly simple to tie, and has great action in the water.

I like woolys and other leech patterns, but during the spring I just love sight fishing and suspending a neutrally buoyant muddler minnow right in front of a bass's mouth until he just can't resist and inhales it. I don't even like classic patterns like the muddler, but to a bass it must look like a hamburger suspended in midair to a famine victim

I have found that you just can't learn very much about bass behavior by using a flyrod unless you already have some bassin experience.
