Given the choice, between a day chucking fluff at bass over a days fly fishing for trout, and bass would take the biscuit every time. I know many of you out there are probably shaking your heads but my need to constantly feel the grab of my fly....which by the way, bass affords me! far out ways a frustrated day on any picturesque trout water in the Natal midlands by a long shot. in many an eye, bass are the quintessential so called "Shit fish" but its hard to wipe the grin off my face when i'm chucking fluff at bass.
Hybrid Tubeology Bass flies
I developed these Tubeology Bass flies a few years back.. Tied with rabbit zonker these Hybrids bagged me so many bass i lost count. perfect for a 6wt but practically impossible to cast once i fitted the spinner blade attachment though. After i'd had my fill of them, i passed them on to a mate who uses conventional Bass fishing gear and there hasn't been a summer month since that's gone by where he hasn't hounded me for more of the same pattern.
