Many people miss out on one of the best parts of the Housatonic River; the smallmouths! Pound for pound these may be the best freshwater species to catch and there are some truly monstrous bronzebacks here in the Housy. Improve your fly fishing and learn some new patterns to tie to catch these often overlooked fish. Jim Plante will be back at the shop for a smallmouth bass clinic on Saturday, July 15. You will be tying some flies and learning how to fish these flies. Cost is $25 per person and participants are asked to bring their fly tying vises and tools. You will be tying flies!
