This week I interview Orvis-endorsed guide Jay Aylward [51:05], a largemough bass fanatic on the fly rod, about how to find and catch them. And not just any largemouth, but trophy bass. Or at least trophies on a fly rod...
In the Fly Box this week, I get some great tips from listeners and also some interesting questions, including:
Fly pattern suggestions for a road trip across Colorado
What are your top 10 trout flies I should tie?
