Speaker: Bob Bruns, “Fly Fishing for Smallmouth Bass”
Thursday June 22, 2017, Endicott Public Library, 7:00 PM (informal tying demonstration at 6:30)
Most fly anglers, first and foremost, are trout anglers. While fly fishing our beautiful coldwater rivers, streams and creeks can be truly rewarding, there’s another game in town that has its own unique benefits. Come listen to chapter member Bob Bruns, a dedicated warm water river rat, talk about fly fishing our warm water rivers for small-mouth bass. His presentation, “Fly Fishing for Small-mouth Bass”, will cover how to fish for the “gentleman game fish of the warm water species” with detailed information on tackle, tactics, and methods that Bob has learned from small-mouth bass masters and has applied to his fishing of the local rivers over the last 20 years. Bob will characterize our area’s warm water rivers and profile the seasons of the small-mouth bass. His presentation will also cover the diverse “by catch” that comes to those who fish for bronze backs – a nice bonus to anyone who fly fishes “brown water”.
