I had Dominic and Mike out on the James river this past Friday. It was Dominic’s first time fishing for smallmouth bass on the fly rod. It was a incredible day throwing top water flies. Dominic’s second fish of the day was 19.5 inch smallmouth bass. The bass ate all day long on top and we ended up putting 6 quality fish in the boat along with a ton of 14 and 15 inch bass. Dominic’s best fish of the day was a 20.5 inch smallmouth bass near the end of the day. I believe Dominic may have gotten spoiled, Friday was one of the best days I have had this year for big smallmouth bass on floating bugs!
