A fishing friend recently told me he wanted to try fly fishing for bass. He knew there were hundreds of fancy trout flies, but should he get different ones for more aggressive freshwater bass? We’ve all heard those familiar questions: If you were allowed only one book on a desert island, what would you pick? If you were allowed one companion, who would you pick? Even more tragic, if you were allowed only five flies to use for bass, what would they be? Imagine the emotional consequences of such a question.
