Nothing compares to the tug of the smallmouth bass in the world of fly fishing. Ohio is a sleeper state in the smallmouth section. The relatively calm gentle streams are usually muddied by agriculture and damming, but that doesn't mean these waters don't hold trophy smallmouth. In the following segment I visited three sections of Ohio Rivers in three different portions of the state.
There were a lot of different scenarios to fish this fall. The water levels, clarity, temperature and luck all played variable roles in hooking into some bronze. I spent days in my t-shirt wet wading and days bundled up in the rain gear. Despite all the variations going on in the fall I've found a few varsity starters in my fly box who seem to always perform. Here's the flies used in the video.
