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 paperback, illustrated with ultra-high-resolution images.
Excellent reference with great photos, 1st Drew Book, won't be the last
The book seems thought out and we’ll done. Like the story behind each fly.
I would like a reply from an email I sent Drew though. In the book it says to email with questions or comments. I had a question on the size of a weight to use for the straw boss and haven’t received a reply. The size of weight, I assume, is very important to the size of the hook because in the description it says that it has a very noticeable rocking motion when it falls in the water column. Would rather get that info from the source instead of buying all the available weights and then figuring it out from there. Especially since this book isn’t the cheapest out there.
Drew has put together a well written book, full of tying instructions and a back storys of the fly and fly tyer. The book is well illustrated with clear pictures and easily understandable instructions. A great value and I will be purchasing additional books in the future.
I found this book very entertaining and the flytying instructions are first class. I've tied up a few of these flies already and enjoyed the whole process. Can't wait to get out fishing with these now.
Excellent book by the MASTER! We don’t all have easy access to the salt, but bass are everywhere. Great patterns and innovative tying techniques that are productive and educational for all skill levels.
This book just like all of Drew’s book are very good. Good step by step instructions. Mike Collier
