One of my favorite times is the largemouth bass spawn. This leads to very aggressive fish and fantastic sight casting. The fly of choice today was a fly I tied for pike. The locality was a small farm pond, and the fish viscous. I managed to get two really good ones. I just love watching those big girls smash that big ugly streamer.


  1. Great post, do you have a recipe/picture of the streamer? From what I can see it looks great and I am always looking for more bass streamer patterns.

    1. Hook: 2x long, whatever size you like
      Tail: Purple rabbit strip, length of hook shank.
      Body: Natural rabbit
      Eyes: Red, Black pupils, whatever weight suits your purpose
      Head: Orange crystal dub. Seals fur or chopped flash would do the trick.
