Description

Black bass--both largemouth and smallmouth--may be found in waters across North America. They are America's most popular gamefish, and with good reason: They strike aggressively, fight hard, jump eagerly, reproduce wantonly, and grow large. Recently, high-tech largemouth bass fishing has become big business--but bass fishing can be kept simple and still be a lot of fun. THE ORVIS POCKET GUIDE TO FLY FISHING FOR BASS sets forth the time-honored American tradition of fishing for bass with a fly rod. Anyone who's tried it will tell you that casting flies for bass is relaxing, loads of fun, and productive--and that fishing with floating bugs is the most enjoyable of all.In a thorough and concise text, William G. Tapply reveals his cherished bass-fishing techniques. From casting and retrieving, navigating, learning where and when to go, and rigging up, this book provides you with all the knowledge you'll need to catch that prize bass. As part of the Orvis book collection and Pocket Guide series, Tapply's book is destined to be the ultimate reference on bass fishing with a fly rod for years to come.show more
