    What flies have you had the best luck with for river smallmouth bass? I'm thinking about switching to flies this summer, so where should I start?

    I've never straight targeted smallies but 2 different rivers I fish have good smallmouth populations. I have caught some big boys on olive and white woolybuggers. Last year I found a stretch of river far up from where most guys go and got into a pile of smallies. Caught one after another on a white woolybugger. It was a blast and I'll definitely be going back this year. Good luck

      Try the Clauser Minnow designed for smallmouths in the Susquehanna river.

        All good suggestions above.
        I too like wooly buggers and clousers. I also tie a helgramite imitation that has it's days.

          I have been trying to tie my own Hellgrammite imitation. Smallmouth are hell on Hellgrammites. So far no luck. But one day, I could just get it right.

            Try a Butt Monkey (kelly galloup streamer).

              Thanks everyone! Hopefully I can tie a few good ones before spring gets here.
