    Default Bass flies

    I decided to tie some bass flies this week as I'm itching to get some good bassfishing in this summer, tested them this morning at Rust de Winter for a couple of hour, got one each on the skitter and baby muddy, the fly with the cone bead does not swim well though, the others with dumbell eyes with 3D stick on's swims perfectly.

    Please excuse the poor photography

    Thanks guys,

    I want to join the bassing.co.za forum to ask the guys if they'd be willing to have a little get together at say Rust de winter/Bronkies/Witbank to pair a flyfisher with them on a boat, to get some decent bass fishing done, and I think it would be interesting to see how we fare against them. Would anyone in the Gauteng area be interested in this? Please let me know as I don't want to ask them and then I'm the only one that wants to do it.

    Cheers
    Ollie

    HaHa..darnet I fell for that one didn't I... Ok ill get in contact with the guys and find out whats cooking

    For reference, bassing.co.za hosts a lot of tubing events and "social" tubing day and night fishing trips, may not be a bad idea for a few of the avid bassing ff on the forum to join in and show em how its done
