Re: Bass Flies

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

Re: Bass Flies

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.

Re: Bass Flies

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

I've caught a lot of bass on the fly the last 2 years

Re: Bass Flies

I've been catching a few on a meat whistle lately. Haven't been able to go try hardcore yet, but a few short outings are making me think that it will be a killer pattern.

Re: Bass Flies

I don't really like wooly buggers. Too much of a general pattern, you never really know what the fish was thinking when he took it. I prefer rabbit strip patterns like double bunny minnows or just a plain black rabbit strip leech. The slumpbuster is a good leech pattern and is easy to tie, and the rabbit fur has tons of motion underwater that can't be beat. Muddler minnows are awesome too, it takes a bit of experimenting, but you can tie the heads sparse enough and they will actually suspend in the water column, something most presentations don't do at all.
