Largemouth Bass Flies – 7 Effective Patterns For Catching Largemouth Bass
If you’re anything like me, just hearing the words "bass fishing" evokes childhood memories of sweltering hot summers and brightly colored deer hair poppers. Like most "nubie" fly anglers, I cut my teeth catching largemouth bass. Unlike other freshwater species who’s diet consists of a minuscule bugs and worms, a largemouth can and will eat just about anything that hits the water. Although small baitfish, frogs and lizards immediately come to mind, they will also consume small, mammals, birds and even baby alligators…here in FL!
That being said, I did my best to select an assortment of proven patterns for this book that provided a wide array of menu options as well as teach you some fun and new tying techniques for creating your own unique creatures!
The classic and contemporary largemouth bass patterns included in this book have a track record of success in a number of different conditions and fishing scenarios. Largemouth Bass Flies contains detailed step-by-step instructions for tying Leiser's Bass Angus, Mahler’s StrawBoss, CJ's Freaky Frog, Chicone's King Rat, Pineapple Grenade Popper, Sunny Corleone Sunfish, and Carnivore Crayfish. 7 proven patterns for catching Largemouth Bass.
This is a 199-page eBook, illustrated with ultra-high-resolution images.
Largemouth Bass Flies (eBook)
I started tying flies when I was eight years old, that’s sixty years ago! With each one of Drew’s books I learn something new. “Largemouth Bass Flies” is no exception and it is extremely informative. Drew’s writing, photography and tying instructions are excellent! A great mix of his own patterns along with those of some other great tiers and fly fishermen. Drew’s tying tips and techniques are extraordinary. One good pattern or unique technique is well worth the cost of the book. You have come a long way since “Feather Brain.” By the way, I reference “Feather Brain” all the time. All the best to you Drew and keep up the good work!
A must for any fly fisherman, Bass are great fun on rod and line but when you fly fish for them it goes to a whole new level. Get an 8 weight and tie up some of Drews patterns and have fun! My only question is when's the smallmouth ebook coming? Thanks Drew! @britishbassslammer
Great book with good flies and great instructions!
As with all of Drew’s books, there are good pictures and instructions. But above all, the history, and techniques for fishing the flies is awesome. Unlike most Fly tying books, Drew’s always inspire. Gives you ideas and inspiration to try your own patterns.
Being relatively new to fly tying, I wanted a book that contained patterns that I could use in my local waters and was easy to follow. Drew’s book certainly is that. The instructions are thorough and the photos clearly illustrate every step. You are not left “guessing” as to what to do next. I like the fact that it is available in an e-format, for ease of use on an iPad so when traveling. I find it a great reference when tying new patterns and challenging myself to use different techniques and materials. I would definitely recommend this book and have subsequently purchased other Chicone titles.
