LARGE & SMALLMOUTH BASS FLIES
BASS FLIES These bass are argumentatively the most popular sought after fish in the nation. Growing up around some of the best rivers for smallmouth in the USA, I have spent many days pursueing these feisty fish. And have developed a few fly patterns that certainly ring both largemouth and smallmouth bass dinner bell.

Don't forget to look at my Bullethead Darters. They are the best shallow water fly I have ever used and they will light up the bass.

The Largemouth Bass
Baby Largemouth Bass- This variation on the Clouser imitate the largemouth bass themselves. All bass are territorial and will defend their portion of water from unwanted guests especially against their same species. This version also passes extremely will for a dace, another food source for smallmouth bass in the rivers and streams.
The Smallmouth Bass
Baby Smallmouth Bass- This variation on the Clouser imitate the smallmouth bass. Aagin all bass are territorial and will defend their portion of water from unwanted guests especially against their same species. This fly is also highly effective because it can represent many small minnows found in rivers and streams.
Bruce's PK40
Bruce's PK 40- This fly was the result of a lot of time spent on the Potomac River trying to develop a fly that would work consistently under diverse conditions.The outcome is a fly that works most of the time during multi-hatch situations, or when fish are chasing the young-of-the-year minnows or crawfish, or even when there is no apparent activity at all.
The Red & White Hackle Fly
Red & White Hackle Fly- This is another fly that both Bob Clouser and Lefty Kreh like to fish for smallmouth. Sometimes this is the "go to" fly in shallow water or when the fish seem to want a larger meal.
Bruce's Crystal Crawfish
Bruce's Crystal Crawfish- Think of a crawfish, and, if you're a fisherman, your thoughts will conjure up the image of a smallmouth bass making it a meal. Smallies and crawfish go together like cake and ice cream.
Bruce's Crystal Bugger
Bruce's Crystal Bugger- This simple fly has taken over 32 different species of fish. It has been one of my "go to" fly for smallmouth bass for years. The crawfish is a combination of peacock crystal flash and a orange maribou tail.
Bruce's Clouser Minnow
The freshwater version of this famous Bob Clouser creation.
Crawfish Clouser
Crawfish Clouser- This is like peanut butter & jelly or ice cream with chocolate syrup to both largemouth & smallmouth bass. I tie this Clouser on a 2/0 stainless steel hook because I found it was also a great fly for redfish in the Louisiana marshes.
