"Big Fly Bob"

May 13, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

Largemouth bass fly fisher Bob Pool has a reputation for tying big files — and catching big fish. “The greatest mistake fly fishers make when they try to catch largemouths, Pool says, is they downsize far too much. They wind up casting a fly because they can handle it on their fly rod, and it’s usually imitating something far too small for a big bass to bother with.” Mike Leggett in the Austin (Texas) Statesman.
