Here's a piece of advice that I learned a long time ago.....

If you want to catch big smallmouths (i.e., bigger than 16"), leave the small flies at home. While downsized flies have their moments, you'll catch the attention of more big fish more consistently with bigger flies.

Seems obvious enough, but I didn't start catching large smallies until I really adopted this attitude. What a difference!
