Tim Holschlag's Smallmouth Fly Fishing DVD

My mother-in-law was nice enough to send me some cash for my birthday, so I ordered Tim Holschlag's new Smallmouth Fly Fishing Revealed DVD.  Tim did a great job putting this DVD together.  My boys watched it with me and we all learned a ton.

The video was very well done and Tim's narration was clear and concise.  The topics covered on the DVD are as follows:

  • The Crayfish Hop (This is my personal favorite)
  • The Twitch & Tease
  • Reading the River
  • The 10 Best Flies
  • The Swing and Pause
  • The 70-Foot Hop
  • The 2-Leader System
  • The Slow Poke
  • The Fast Water Hop
  • The Float Fly
  • The Old Reliable
  • Tackle & Rigging Details
  • Cost is $24.95
My favorite parts of the DVD were The Crayfish Hop and the section on reading the water.  I took Tim's stream side seminar a few years back and I was a little rusty.  The video footage answered all of the questions I had from the stream side seminar.

I also ordered a few packs of Tim's (large) strike indicators.  They are simple, light and bulletproof.   I like the fact you can see these indicators from far away and the stay put on the line!

The DVD, flies, strike indicators, other gear and plenty of tips are all on Tim's website

I can't wait to get out and try the things I learned from this DVD.  We all know Tim has written the most comprehensive smallmouth books out there, now he has the DVD to match.

    I may have to order the DVD; fishing for spots and smallmouth are a lot alike. I like the indicators, but I have to say that I am now moving more towards the big dry and small dropper rig, which gives me a double chance of a take. thanks for sharing
