The period we refer to as bug fishing is here.  With cooler nights the summer cicadas have started falling out of trees and dying off.  There are a lot of big smallmouth bass cruising shore lines and waiting in the shadows for a floating meal.  This is the most exciting time of year for smallmouth bass fly fishing.  Watching a big bass slowly rise up and suck a popper down from the surface will get anyones heart racing. Here are just a few from the past two days that fell for the topwater fly. DSC_2956 DSC_2959 DSC_2960.
