Want to catch big bass?

How about really big bass? Striper fishing rivers in the south during the summer can be off the hook but it can also be challenging. Those big bruisers can get pretty damned selective and you a pattern that will get them moving.

Nobody knows this game better than Garner Reed. Today Garner is going to share a pattern he developed for catching big striped bass and spotted bass on the Etowah River. He calls it Garners White Trash and it gets the job done.

Watch the video and learn to tie this great bass fly.

    • The way the dumbbell eyes are oriented will make the fly ride point up. If you tie weighted eyes on top of the hook shank, the eyes will typically flip the hook point up. Great way to avoid snags. Solid fly!

      • While tying the eyes on top of the hook helps, Float always turns a fly faster than sink. That is to say the the materials which float determines how the fly rides. It’s how the bunny strip is tied in that really makes the fly ride point up.
