Fly fishing for largemouth bass is quite a passion, and taking it so far as to tie your own flies is really the ultimate in what many call "long rod" fishing. It is elegant and graceful and under the right conditions as (or more) effective than any other form of presenting lures to unsuspecting predators. The baits are light, the approach and landing is much lighter than even a light plastic worm, and they can attract equally well. Tie them yourself and you are connected to the fish you catch in ways the rest of us cannot imagine.
