IT’S TIME to kick off another run of our extremely popular White River Fly Tying Video series with a neat bass popper from the vise of our 16-y-o wunderkind shop rat “Junior” Schraeder.
This is a great one to whip up and throw into harm’s way with a tough construction and tasty performance.
“The wide profile, light weight, and durability of this fly make it an awesome frog pattern for Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Kentucky Bass.
When casting it, make sure to get it as close to the bank as possible, as this is where it is most likely to get eaten. Try to look for grassy banks, or preferably Lilly Pads to cast to.
Once the fly hits the water, give it a few seconds before popping it, as this gives the fish time to become interested in it. Tight lines and have fun fishing.” _ Junior
It’s been great to get back in the “studio” with our mate Brian Wise from Fly Fishing The Ozarks whose creative skills with the camera and editing desk makes these video’s shine, even if you don’t like his music choices just turn the sound down.
We have 5 more videos in the can for the coming months, covering deer hair techniques, modern nymphs and of course everyone’s YouTube favorites, meaty streamers.
