Dayum! Never caught a smallie that big on the fly! Awesome!

Funny, I know dudes who fish both styles - big rods, big flies, and small and small. Both styles seem to work for both dudes. Me, I end up with bluegill and small bass on the small flies and rods. Makes me giggle like an 8 year old.

When I use the bigger rods, I end up switching over and chasing carp, usually with no or very little success. Still somehow end up giggling like an 8-year old!
It is not the killing ...; it is the contest of skill and cunning. The true hunter counts his achievement in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport.

Flukes, either the Fluke Jr or the regular sized one. 1/0 Gammy EWG for the Jrs and 4/0 Gammy EWG for the bigger ones. I like Ark Shiner, baby bass, pearl, & watermelon for colors. I grew up fishing the Harpeth, and have fished it for almost 20 years, there are still fish to be caught in the river, just find the deep holes.
So many smallmouth, so little time.

I fish the Stones river in the spring quite a bit.Flukes,floating artificial craws,grubs,wirlybees,and creek minnows have worked well for me.Caught several 2-3lb bronzebacks this spring on them.Also work good for redeye.Right around swift water is where I find them.Kinda hard to find any water lately.
