WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
“Not since Dr. Henshall has anyone sung the praise of the black bass with
such eloquent sincerity. But SMALLMOUTH STRATEGIES is more than just good
angling literature. The book left me stunned by my own misconceptions. No,
these fish aren’t just frustrated largemouth that nature condemned to cold
waters, nor is their capture so simple as merely tying on a trout fly. My
angling repertoire is much the richer for the wisdom Ryan expresses here—the
result of a lifetime of smallmouth angling.” —Jack Ellis, author of
Bassin’ with a Fly Rod
“Will Ryan’s knowledge and writing about fly rodding for smallies is so
comprehensive and compelling that SMALLMOUTH STRATEGIES is one of those rare
books that is not only informative but downright motivating.” —Cliff
Hauptman, author of The Fly Fisher’s Guide to Warmwater Lakes
