Author Robert. W. Streeter has just released his first fly-fishing DVD, Tying and Fishing for Smallmouth Bass. Streeter’s DVD combines on-the-water smallmouth fly-fishing techniques for wadeable streams, large rivers, and lakes. The video also includes detailed tying instruction for his favorite smallmouth flies, including point of view detail.
Streeter’s life-long fascination for chasing big smallmouth bass with fly tackle is evident in the approach the DVD takes. Tying and Fishing for Smallmouth Bass is crafted with both the skilled fly angler and new recruit in mind. Streeter takes the viewers along with him and details his favorite fly presentations, rigs, and techniques. The fly tying portion of the video features patterns anyone can tie in 15 minutes to catch bass on the surface, down on the bottom, and everywhere in between.
Tying and Fishing for Smallmouth Bass departs from similar DVD’s in that it provides smallmouth fly-fishing and tying information in an organized, systematic fashion for all of the conditions an angler is likely to encounter, including places most fly anglers overlook—like big rivers. For example, Streeter’s portrayal of his favorite smallmouth action on the Mohawk River during the “herring blitz.” He also gives wading anglers some great tips, like indicator fishing crayfish patterns.
