    Default Flies for bass

    I have been having great fun behind the vice of late and tied up some flies for them smallmouth and largemouth bass...

    Some meat whistles (as per Conrad Botes thread on F&F) and an articulated baitfish (as per Gerrit Viljoen's technique). Cant wait to try them out.

    Hey Dollar! As per Conrad's recommendation, I bent them myself. Be careful, the gamas and grips, "she don like to bend homes", they farking snap. I had a wack of tiemcos (I think) which are bendale and still retain their strenght. Just take your leatherman, measure lekker, then bend up with your thumb, sorted!
