The large bass are now feeding on large minnows so fish these large streamers deeply to catch them. Special includes 2 of each fly: Magnum Hog Sucker #4, Magnum Bluegill #4, and Magnum Darter #4 with a free Murray's Bright Butt 9ft 2X Bass Leader.
Articulated Bass Crawler--This is a very big streamer for very large bass and musky. It looks much like the natural dace minnows that these large fish feed on. Fish this with a firm strip-pause-strip action which causes the articulated section to swim like a real dace minnow.

This Shad streamer is very bright and flashy which helps the bass see it in slightly discolored water. If you are standing in the river in knee deep water and it is so discolored that you cannot see your feet this is your cue to fish this fly. Many bass feed along the two to three foot deep bank in these conditions and you can do better here than in the deep part of the river. size 4 only
Blue Damsel- Every summer the rivers are alive with natural damselflies. Fish these over the areas where you see bass feeding on the naturals with a slow skating action.
Olive Dragonfly Skater- Fish these along the grassbeds and the tails of the pools with a slow skating action. The bass cruise these areas and will quickly take this fly.
The Mr. Rapidan Bass Skater is the most productive dry fly we have for smallmouth bass. On our guided float trips many of our clients take many bass on this along the banks. In my personal fishing I catch many nice...
I became sold on this Bitch Creek nymph when I began fishing the Yellowstone River in the seventies. Fishing it upstream dead drift below the riffles gave me many very large rainbows and browns; even my guide Ray Hurley who preferred streamers was impressed. I brought these back to Virginia and they turned out to be a great smallmouth nymphs. For bass fish them across stream with a six inch stripping action every ten seconds below the riffles.
The Casual Dress nymph developed by "Polly Rosborough" is one of the few nymphs which I believe effectively mimics natural mayflies, stoneflies and caddisflies. This lets us fish it successfully in all types of water at all angles. I use it in sizes 8, 10 and 12 for trout and in sizes 4, 6 & 8 for bass.
Fish this crayfish pattern along the sides of the bass rivers (Shenandoah River) at dusk with a slow line hand stripping action. These are also very productive on heavily overcast days and when the rivers are slightly discolored.
I use these Clouser Minnows in sizes 2 & 6 for bass and the 2/0 in Chartreuse/White and 2/0 Silver Shiner in saltwater for blues, stripers, reds and trout. For the bass i usually use a floating line. For saltwater I use a Teeny 350 Sinking Line on my 9wt. if the water is over ten feet deep and a SA Mastery Streamer Express Clear Tip on shallow water.
Fish these damselflies along the aquatic grassbeds with a slow twitching action for smallmouth bass. It is also one of our best carp flies when fished ahead of the feeding carp along the banks. On trout spring creeks fish this upstream dead drift along the aquatic grassbeds and below the undercut banks.
