Welcome aboard Ryan!

In addition to what Kevin mentioned, Tim Holschlag has another excellent book entitled "Smallmouth Fly Fishing, The Best Techniques, Flies and Destinations"

Another great resource is Bob Clouser's "Fly Fishing for Smallmouth in Rivers and Streams"

Lots of great reading resources to get you through this Pandemic winter and prepared for spring fishing!

Tim Landwehr's book is geared towards northern wisconsin but you could apply that here.  I think Austin Adduci (Kank Guide) is mentioned in there.

You can get most of these books at your Library, they will transfer to your local library.

Another good book is,"Fly Fishing for Smallmouth Bass", by Harry Murry and illustrated by Dave Whitlock. It discusses tackle, casting, reading the water, flies, techniques, etc.

There is a video too.
