With conventional bass tackle a Smallmouth Bass is ‘relatively’ easily subdued. Can you imagine catching them on fly? I often watch with great envy when my mate Myles catches them on fly. They give him serious stick and a great fight that lasts 10 times longer than with conventional bass tackle. We have a trip planned for end of September 2012 and getting a smallie on fly is top of my to do list for this trip.
Enjoy the video we took last year at Clanwilliam of Myles trying to land a 1.5kg odd smallie.
