Lefty Info from the New Hampster Wildlife sight for thought.

Smallmouth Bass
All bass are spring spawners, with nest-building occurring in mid-May when the water temperatures are in the high 50s and low 60s. Spawning smallmouths are found in areas with gravel and boulder bottoms. In the summer, they will stay in deeper water than largemouths because they like the cooler temperatures. Look for smallmouths along rocks near drop-offs. On summer nights, smallmouths will head to shallow water looking for crayfish.

Several methods may be used to take smallmouths, including fly casting with floating bugs, and trolling or casting with a plug or spinner. The most common and successful method is still-fishing with live bait, such as worms, minnows, hellgrammites and crayfish. Fall brings them back into shallower water, which awakens a drive to eat and put on weight for the winter.

juro Yessir, it fits the intent just fine. Hope I get one.

Terry, we're just going to have to follow this up with a bronzeback clave this spring 2002 - I will go ahead and add it as a resolution NOW.

StriperTom Ok.. I'm in.

Roop, please send me your snail mail address and I will send you 7 flies on Monday.

I'm not sure what to call the thing I am tying (I came up with it last night with materials I had on hand). It is a chartreuese popping bug, like a Bob's Banger, with rubber legs through the body and a chart. rabbit strip collar (behind the foam head) and tail, tied on a stinger hook.

Hopefully this fits the theme of the swap, if not, please let me know before they go into production

Lefty Tom,
Don't mind me I'm easily confused. This thing seems to be layed back like bass fishing itself.
If you feel like giviing and getting some warmwater flies, go for it. I hope to get some great ones to try. If not, catch ya on the next one.

juro Tom -

IMHO don't worry about it! We'd love to have you. You are sure to beat me anyway

Seriously, just do it.

best regards,

StriperTom Sorry for all the confusion that I may have caused. I think I got this swap confused with another, revolving swap, which made it easier for people to come in and join at any time.

Since most people have already targetted 7 flies, I don't want to complicate things by coming in late and will sit this one out.

I'll keep an eye out for the next one, now that I am more tuned into this board.

Thanks, and sorry for the confusion..

Lefty Oops, mine went out in the mail this am. I think I put in an extra though. Not sure. let's see:

There were:

7 entries (I think)
less one for myself =6
Add one extra for the meister=7

I think I sent 7.
