Podcast: Smallmouth Bass Fly-Fishing Tips with Colby Trow


This week we have what I feel is one of our best podcasts ever—an interview with Colby Trow of Mossy Creek Fly Shop on his advanced tactics for catching smallmouth bass. I learned a ton in this podcast, and it makes me want to head south to chase some bronzebacks right now.

And in this extra-long podcast there are plenty of fly box questions: Using a stomach pump on trout, how to keep your indicator from sliding, whether bright silver and gold beads are a thing of the past, how to find secondary feathers on a goose wing, and good substitutes for deer hair on a Comparadun wing.

  1. I’ve asked Tom a couple of times for a more in-depth podcast on smallmouth bass, possibly with a guest expert. What do you know, he delivers one on my birthday, March 21, and it’s even got an expert from my home state of Virginia!

    Thanks Tom for a great birthday podcast.

  2. Excellent poscast! Plus there’s a shoutout to Mad River Outfitters! I love that place. Great info on smallies that I will use for sure. Thank you for the help!

  6. I’ve done 3 smallmouth floats with Colby down The Shenandoah. He is an awesome guide and a great guy. Mossy Creek Fly Shop is the best in Va.
