Back cover copy

Bass bug fishing is the most exciting way to catch America's favorite gamefish-the black bass. These hard-fighting fish are found in all of the lower forty-eight states: in cold, deep northern lakes, fast-moving streams, ponds, reservoirs, mighty rivers, and tiny creeks. No method of fishing for them is more productive-or fun-than using the surface bug. Bass Bug Fishing is a detailed and comprehensive guide to top-water fly fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass, covering everything anyone needs to know to enjoy the thrill of fly rodding for bass. Author William G. Tapply explores the history of bass bugs; the behavior of bass at various times of day and seasons of the year; how to recognize good bugging water; what types of tackle and gear are needed; how to select effective bass bugs; and the art of making your own. With color and black-and-white photographs throughout, Bass Bug Fishing will be an invaluable aid to anyone who uses a fly rod to fish for bass. (6 x 9, 160 pages, color photos, b&w photos)William G. Tapply is a prolific author of books on the outdoors, including A Fly-Fishing Life (page 135) and Sportsman's Legacy (page 141), the Brady Coyne mystery novels, and numerous articles in Field & Stream, American Angler, and other periodicals. He has taught writing at Emerson College, Clark University, and The Writer's Digest School.
