This week my guest is one of our top warmwater fly fishing experts. You probably know of Kip Vieth as a muskie guide, as he is one of the most famous fly-rod muskie anglers. But his first love is smallmouth bass, and it’s fascinating that his location is the most famous river in the United States, the Mississippi River. He fishes the upper river where the water is clear and the location is unspoiled by the endless development we think of when we imagine the Mississippi. As well as discovering his unique part of the world, you’ll also pick up many tips on catching smallmouth bass anywhere.
In the Fly Box section I try to answer some questions on targetting carp,, alternatives to wire when fishing for muskie, using flies with a spin rod, my "method" when approaching a river, and more.
