Weedless Bass Flies

  
Back in the days before internet, email and social media us old guys used to get our vicarious fishing fix watching TV shows like Jimmy Houston Outdoors. Personally I learned quite a bit about fishing watching him wisecrack his way around the south catching mostly largemouth bass. Of all the things learned the one thing that sticks in my mind the most is a statement he used to repeat quite often.
 “If you’re not getting hung up, you’re not fishing where the fish are.”
While I know there are exceptions to that statement it is for the most part one of the solid truths of largemouth bass fishing……..to a degree. Big bass do live in tough places and spend much of their time relating to some kind of fly/lure grabbing cover. For conventional gear anglers there are quite a few options for getting into that cover without concerns for getting hung up and losing an expensive lure by using weedless “baits”, as gear anglers call them. For fly anglers the selection of weedless flies has always been much more limited.
As someone who grew up throwing those weedless baits into thick cover and dragging bass out without fear of hanging up it has been frustrating since converting to fly tackle. After a couple decades of not having flies that will get in and get out of heavy cover I set out to change that.
It’s taken several years of tinkering, tweaking and searching out the right materials and configurations to come up with a full line of flies that are specifically designed to catch big bass in heavy cover. Whether you want to fish heavy weed cover or timber up top or drag an undulating fly along deep drops through fish attracting cover there’s a fly in this series that will do just that.
