A recent issue of The Fisherman had an article about fly fishing for smallmouth bass. It suggested using those little panfish poppers, so I tried it out in one of my favorite bass lakes. I caught more bass than panfish! No monsters, but several largemouths and a couple smallmouths up to 2 pounds. I also caught a few crappie, rock bass, sunfish and pickerel. Gotta love those topwater hits!
