Tying up some bass flies.
Tying up some bass flies for next spring. I'm looking to make something that will go deep and entice a bass from his spot in the stream. And, one that will pull a bass out from under some structure on a lake. This fly should do the trick. The body is of bunny strips.
Of course I'm gonna tie a Woolly Bugger - all parts chartreuse with a cone nose for deep drifting and jigging action - and a little flashabou! I'm going out for larger smallmouth bass, spots and LMB next year.
I made a trip to Cabela's for tying material. It's been quite some time since I made my way to that shop. I try hard not to go. Lots of Christmas goodies at Cabela's!! And who can forget about some top water action?? Not me! My favorite small lake is in terrible shape which means I've got to get out of my comfort zone and find some new places to put the kayak in.
I mean to catch more largemouth bass and panfish. Impoundments are probably going to be more of a target this spring. I have to find my oars!!! I bought an anchor this year or last for my kayak. That does help out more than you would think. So far this week, I've sold 5 sets of flies this week. I'm hoping sales pick up in late winter and spring. All I have to do now is figure out to tie articulated flies - possibly the Sex Dungeon??!?!? I will also be purchasing flies from Cabela's, the local fly shop and wherever else I can find them.
