    I know it's early but I'm going to try out my hand at fly fishing for bass this year. I'm gathering materials for tying attractor/ baitfish patterns. Do any of you have any suggestions for sites or pics for Bass patterns. I'm probably going to make some poppers - large and medium but want to get some wet patterns going to. Any help would be appreciated.

    I would look at what you already have in your fly box. A lot of patterns are equally as effected for trout as bass. For an example....Woolley Buggers. I ties them a little larger and in a few different colors than I normally would for trout.

    If the water is warm my go to fly is the Diver, if it is early morning/night/sunset, Im going with the Polks Dirty Rat, (the head floats above the water and the rest is below the water line like a real mouse....) Colder water I fish the gulley worm low and slow...

    The Matuka is another great baitfish pattern for bass. Tie 'em big.
