Gary Garth talks about the growing popularity of fly fishing for largemouth bass in a state that was the home of competitive bass fishing. “Aaron Diskin, who owns the on-line fly shop fishingfliesonline.com, has seen his business double in the past year. Bass fishermen have helped drive that growth, plucking patterns from both the freshwater and saltwater menus. If it looks like something a bass might eat, anglers apparently are willing to try it. ‘The Lefty Deceiver is good for bass, and so is the Flashtail Whistler,’ Diskin said from his New Mexico headquarters. ‘But I’d recommend almost anything with some flash in it.'” In the Louisville, Kentucky Courier-Journal.
