WHEN IT comes to Ozark Smallmouth and our wild rivers and streams, its hard to go past the knowledge of our guides Duane Hada and Ben Levin.
Both of these guys have Ozark waters in their veins and dig smallies with a passion. Duane’s Craft Fur Clouser has been a staple of our summer warmwater fly bin year after year. Together with the Creek Crawler crawdad you just can’t have enough.
The Clouser tie is a dead ringer for our Ozark creek minnows, and the boys have been rocking the smallmouth already this season. Check the evidence here. And don’t forget our Smallmouth Class on June 14.
Once again this was a fine piece of work by Brian and Jenny Wise of Fly Fishing the Ozarks _ each of the finished videos that come my way blow my mind _ and I was there. Thanks guys
