Largemouth Bass Lineup

Sunday, April 10, 2011


I'm having some trouble naming my newer flies, so I thought I'd enlist your help.  In the comments section, please give me your name ideas for each of the following flies.  Please indicate which of the flies you are naming (orange, yellow or purple).  If you come up with the name I choose to use, I'll send you the fly!  That's better than a cash prize, right?  Ha ha!

You must be or become a follower of my blog to enter.
You can enter as many names as you want.
Deadline to enter is April 30th- I'll announce the winners soon after that.
Please remember this is totally subjective and only for fun...


Here they are:


  1. 1)Floating Tiger
    2)Sweet Lemon

    purple: "Grape Go Getter"

  5. I can't help with the names. My ability in this area caused me to give up on it a long time ago for my own ties. However, let me suggest that the first two shown are just color variations of the same popper design something that is common for warm water patterns. So the need to come up with names can be slightly reduced IMHO.

    What about those eyes are you hand painting them?
    THey don't look hand painted.

  12. Hey Kevin,

    Thanks for entering the contest. Yes the eyes are hand painted. I use small brass rods and sewing needles to do the dots on the body. I use small brass rods to do the eyes. Hope that helps.

  13. I would have never guessed that. The speckling is very evenly dispursed with no recognizable pattern.Very nicely done! I know it may be some what of a pain but anyway to get a close-up view of those eyes in progress?
