Synopsis of Class

Nothing says summer like fishing for Smallmouth Bass on the surface. The memories of a nice warm evening catching smallies as you cast a nice popper along the shore are what keep us going through the cold winter. For most people, their introduction to smallmouth is with a topwater fly.


There are hundreds of poppers, hair bugs, and foam flies that one can throw to smallies. This class will focus on three productive flies. Each uses closed celled foam and each has certain advantages over the others. All are easy to tie and can be modified to your liking.
