Bass Flies: Alien Creature Theory and the Columbia River Gorge

Chester Allen says he is only a competent smallmouth bass fisherman. That’s why when he catches lots of smallmouth, he knows that its more than just media buzz. “I believe in the alien creature theory of bass flies, but the smallmouth probably take the fly as a crawdad. The marabou feathers and rubber legs give this fly a lifelike twitch and shiver as it sinks toward the bottom. I saw a big metallic flash under the water and set the hook.” In the San Francisco Chronicle.
