  1. Hi Colin welcome aboard, what fly/lures are you using for the largemouth? Thanks for the report!
  2. Great turnout for Brad Miller's seminar last night with over 20 attendees participating. Brad gave an excellent demonstration of tying his blockhead popper, talked about his approach when fishing for smallmouth and his winter trip to the Yucatan Peninsula for tarpon fishing which sounds like a blast. Three attendees, Chris Popp, Rich McElligott and Joe Augustine, won raffle prizes including the really cool mitten scissor, available on flybass.com and a Plano fly box.. Check out our recording of Brad's talk on our you tube video if you missed it live.

  4. We had a great turnout for the seminar last night. Over 20 guests attended. Thank you Mike and Kurt for the excellent presentation. I think we all found the seminar to be very informative and insightful for productive smallmouth fishing on our Illinois streams. If you missed the seminar last night you can watch it on our you tube channel.

  7. Don't want to miss this zoom event one week from today, so make sure to get on your calendars.
  8. Thanks Rich. I love the whopper plopper but man are they expensive, so I'll have to check out this hopefully cheaper alternative.

  11. Ryan, another necessity for your fly box is the bugle bug popper, imo even a superior summertime topwater fly to the ant. You might have to purchase this one however, as they are difficult to make on your own, or so I am told.
  12. The Chernobyl ant is a great summertime topwater fly that smallmouth love on the dead drift! The ones you tied should fish very well>
  13. Colin, I don't believe you need to download the zoom app to attend. If you have a desktop computer or smart phone, just click on link provided for the event and that should bring you into the event.
  14. Jim, sorry you can't make it tonight but alas our Zoom seminar with Gordon tonight will be recorded and available for view by our members on a later date. Nothing like being there live however, so hopefully you can attend a future ISA zoom presentation.
