Anyone get out there fly fishing for bass? It's a great complement to conventional tackle and works well in highly pressured waters. My go-to fly has been the closer minnow, which can be swam or jigged on the bottom in shallow waters. Seems like a good technique for spawning fish while the big girls are in the shallows.

A number of us fish warmwater. With a thorough search you can find bass photos on this site and reports from past bass trips.

Hello Grayson,

I have much love for smallmouth and if you do a search on this web site you should be able to see me holding really slab smallmouth.

Near the upper right corner is a dialog box with the word Google next to it. Type "smallmouth" in the box and at least three different posts I made with pictures pops up.
