Skip Morris Bass Flies

Skip Morris bass flies...

Although Skip has developed several deadly flies for largemouth and smallmouth bass and for the panfishes, the Solitude Fly Company's picked up only this one so far—but they sure picked the right one.

Skip's Predator gets a heavy workout from countless fly fishers all over North America every year. It's been a wildly popular fly pattern for well over a decade.

To find specific flies more easily at the Feather-Craft store, we've placed a link by each fly's description that will take you directly to that fly on Feather-Craft's site (see photo and description of the fly below).

The following fly is Skip's original design
and is tied by the Solitude Fly Company.

Skip Morris's Predator is trusted by bluegill and largemouth-bass fanatics across North America. However, it's also a killer fly for smallmouth bass and even for trout in lakes. Most anglers fish the Predator on top of the water, which is a deadly approach for bluegills (and yellow perch and crappies—for lots of panfishes) and largemouths in lakes, and for smallmouth bass in both lakes and streams.

Fished down on a sinking line, however, this versatile fly is just as effective in lakes, ponds, and reservoirs for bluegills and other panfishes, both basses, and for trout—the line finds the bottom while the Predator rises just above the bottom to avoid snags but hook fish.

In size 10, the Predator is really a fly for bluegills and their panfish cousins on top or deep on a sinking line, and for trout in lakes. In size 6, it's small enough to hook a big bluegill but large enough to interest a sizeable largemouth or smallmouth bass.

A popular design in the Skip Morris bass flies arsenal, the Predator is an attractor fly, which bass and panfish (and trout in lakes) love to bite.

Available in size: 6, 10
