The past two years I have been fishing a large(#2-#1/0) gurgler type pattern for the local largemouth bass. I generally use solid chartreuse or white. I have found that the soft seductive sounds that the fly produces when retrieved/twitched have proven especially productive. Another of my favorite patterns for largemouth is a chartreuse Tabory snake fly. I tie these large and apply "bubble" type dolls eyes which seem to aid in the flotation of the pattern. I fish this pattern as a popper/slider type fly. In ponds with minimal vegetation I love to fish a big "hare worm" type of pattern with heavy lead eyes and a weed guard. There is just something about a rabbit strip that all species from trout to pike seem to respond positively too....and lets not forget a few lightly weighted clousers...good luck
