    Bass fishin isn't bass fishin if you are not doing on top. What ever you tie, it has to be WEEDLESS or it is WORTHLESS in my bass book. I catch my nicest bass as far back into the slop as I can throw. if you are afraid to cast back into that stuff, you are not going to catch as many, or as nice of, bass. Google "the bass pond" is a great site.

    Listen to wrench, he lives in the heartland of western trout fishing and gets it done on huge largemouths and pike.

    Weedless or worthless has held true for me.

    Zuddlers, Clausers, and JJ buggers are my favorites.

    One time I caught a 3lb smallie on a sz 18 para bwo someone gave me while fishing rocky ford. On the fast, subsurface strip. Thats almost as cool as crump getting into steel on a adams fished jig style.

    I like mouse fly for top surface fishing. Several reasons, first the rapacious strike make my nerve tight. Second, the enlongated stiff fur make a nature weed guard. Third, even the small bass dare to charge big mouse, funny.
    I do think the way you drag the mouse is very important. make a swimming wave is the key. For colder day, fish stay deep I like to use slow leech crawing along the bottom. feel the take.

    One more for your arsenal. Muddler on erratic strip. Bass go nuts for them when they are in cover or on the prowl. If you see them chasing minnows, toss a muddler and hang on!
