Good smallmouth flies for a beginner in fly fishing

Recommended Posts

The one tip that really makes a difference is: wait for the line to load. In other words, be sure to pause on the backcast before you bring it forward. Wait for the line to load. I really don't think about it to much now, but sometimes, usually when fatigue starts setting in at the end of the day, my cast starts getting sloppy. I tell myself to PAUSE ON THE BACKCAST and it usually brings me back to form.

After tying a clouser on a jig hook, i have not used a straight hook ever again. #10 to #6 is my hook size preference.attachicon.gifIMG_2840.JPG

 

A lot of people like the 60 degree hooks for Clousers and similar flies. The EC 410 and 413 come to mind.

I had a bunch of 60's leftover that I used for tying Fodders and they worked well for the Clousers as I like to tie them in larger sizes. Plus, its about the only fly I can tie!
