A perfect primer on the most fun way to catch bass. BASSIN’ is more fun with a fly rod!
Over 20 million people go out for bass every year, and in this important book Jack Ellis unravels some of the barriers that face the fly-rod bass fisherman—whether a new convert from spinning and baitcasting or a trout fly fisherman in new water.
To fully understand fly fishing for bass, one must have an acquaintance with its origins. This book helps the reader appreciate the rich history of bass fishing. Jack Ellis brings his skills as a naturalist to these pages, not only because of their relevance to successful angling, but also because of their contribution to the fly fisher’s overall experience in nature.
Jack’s extensive experience and experimentation with a variety of flies and fly-rod lures prompt the reader to think about his own bass-fishing techniques. Serious warmwater fly fishers need to read this book.
