Overview

In a handsome distillation of a lifetime of wisdom, master angler Lefty Kreh reveals the essentials of fly fishing for bass, arguably the most popular and important gamefish that is admired and hunted by legions of anglers, and found in nearly every state and province of North America.
Lefty devotes chapters to tackle, discussing rods, reels, lines, leaders, and flies, and which type of each best suits the bass hunt. His expertise on flies is particularly encyclopedic. He tailors the fly fisher's selection to both smallmouth and largemouth bass, explaining, for example, why the smallmouth might prefer the Clouser Minnow, Woolly Bugger, and Soft Hackle, and why the largemouth might choose the Red & White Hackle and Half & Half.
Having informed and outfitted the angler, Kreh shows where to fish, providing valuable advice on reading large and small rivers, lakes, and ponds, as well as giving tips on using boats and even freeing flies from snags.
Dedicated bass anglers will catch more and bigger bass. Newcomers will discover a superb angling experience. Both will find Fly Fishing for Bass an indispensable reference.
