Largemouth Bass Flies: Seven Effective Patterns for Catching Largemouth Bass .
by Drew Chicone - 2018

If you�re anything like me, just hearing the words �bass fishing� evokes childhood memories of sweltering hot summers and brightly colored deer hair poppers. Like most �noobie� fly anglers, I cut my teeth catching largemouth bass. Unlike other freshwater species whose diet consists of minuscule bugs and worms, a largemouth can, and will, eat just about anything that hits the water. Although small baitfish, frogs, and lizards immediately come to mind, they will also consume small, mammals, birds, and even baby alligators (here in FL)! That being said, I did my best to select an assortment of proven patterns for this book that provided a wide array of menu options as well as teach you some fun and new tying techniques for creating your own unique creatures!
