    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!

    HE HE HE...Thanks Andre...I thought it could be dredged deeeeeeep and other then catching sludge, rocks and other relics, perhaps a peeved HUMONGOUS Lakies Brown would decide to bite this offering, perhaps a smaller version there of.
