Hi, I’m Brad Miller. I created FlyBass.com as an alternative to websites geared only to sell product with little information for the visitor. My primary business is BAMsites Web Marketing. I understand the value of content oriented websites. With my increased appreciation for the internet, I figured a site all about fly fishing for smallmouth and other fish would be worthwhile.
I love smallmouth bass! I love everything about ‘em. I returned to this sport several years ago after spending many years chasing trout and saltwater species.
I’ve fished smallmouth for over thirty years on some of the most hallowed waters in the Midwest and Canada. Now I prefer fishing smaller, overlooked rivers near my home range of north central Minnesota. My first love is fly fishing. After years of fishing in the Rockies for trout I finally realized the best, most hassle-free fly fishing was right outside my door on the warmer streams and rivers holding smallmouth bass and other great game fish.
We believe in valuable information for novice and advanced bass fly fisherman. We draw our information from some of the best bass fly fisherman in the country for your benefit.
At right is probably my biggest smallmouth so far, 21 1/4 inches from the Ole Mississippi in central Minnesota. If you want to consistently hook the big ones, it need not be happenstance.
I‘ve fished most of the major rivers in the western mountain states, the Caribbean, and south Florida. I truly enjoy the challenge and skill involved in enticing large trout on tiny flies in heavily fished waters.
I get a major jolt from tarpon, there is no greater game fish on a fly, period. Bonefish and snook are great gamefish as well, and I love them too. But things have changed.
In today’s crazed world we rekindle simple pleasures like canoeing and wading. Quiet stalking through bright waters supplants “pressure fishing” famous trout water. Quietly slipping down an undeveloped stretch of stream trumps gonzo bass boats and rock star fisherman.
We treasure smallmouth rivers that offer simplicity, intimacy and excitement to a sport that has become far too complicated.
Join us as we celebrate Fly Fishing for Bass. Better yet, join your local bass or fly fishing club to help support bronzebacks everywhere. See you on the water!
