Synopsis:  Fly Fishing The Upper Water Column For Large and Smallmouth Bass

Trent’s 50 minute PowerPoint Presentation evolved from three feature articles on flyrod bass fishing that he wrote for California Fly Fisher Magazine.  His program focuses on the upper water column where bass are reachable with a flyrod.  He will discuss the biology and behavior patterns that bring bass into shallow areas, bass food items and the types of habitat and structure that produce inshore and topwater action.  Effective fly patterns, retrieves and tactics are covered.  Equally important is discussion of the revolution in flyrod bass fishing tackle that includes specialty rods, lines and innovative new flies, and how to select a flyrod outfit that will allow you to cast them effortlessly.  California and western waters are mentioned including some that you might not know about.  These include the spectacular Northern largemouth fishery at Oregon’s Davis Lake,  smallmouth on the Umpqua river as well as chasing huge Florida strain fish at Mexico’s El Salto and Picachos lakes.  A bonus section looks briefly at “Bugging For Browns in Chilean Patagonia”, where Brown trout behave like bass and eat Fat Albert terrestrials as well as dragonfly patterns and bass bugs in Andean mountain lakes.
