    Great Company and a Great Fly - 6/12/2013
    By: from Blue River, OK

    This fly might be able to catch anything that swims in fresh water! I've caught rainbows and browns, largemouth smallmouth and Kentucky bass, white bass and hybrids, many species of bream, channel cat and crappie. The marabou gives this streamer lots of natural movement that the fish can't seem to resist. And the epoxy head helps this fly hold'll lose it before it becomes unfishable!

    "hot fly' - 7/11/2012
    By: from Southern Applachians

    This fly has worked best for me with a 6 or 7 wt rod, sink-tip line and 3-4 ft. Mirage Flurocarbon, 3-4 X, a mono non-slip loop knot and stripped erratically but with an occasional pause. Recently caught 3 large mouth out of the same "hole" in 5 casts in a large resevoir. (Incidentially was using a Hydros 7 wt. 9 ft. "10 tip flex") Please do run out of or change this fly!

    a little hard to get really deep but if in the right spot a good spring run!

    Brilliant fly - 10/28/2010

    Purchased a few of these in white and yellow and had amazing results, steelhead and browns seem to enjoy just crushing this fly - not for the fainthearted.

    Just add water! - 6/13/2009

    Fish love this fly. 1. Tie Smack'em to leader. 2. Cast across the current, 3. Mend upstream. 4. Strip line and hang on. (Simple and effective.)

    a winner - 11/12/2008

    occasionally you come across a pattern maker who's work is consistently successful, Ian Colin James's work is positively dangerous to fish.

    By: from Muskoka

    This weekend in Muskoka, Canada there were about 20 smallmouth caught... I got about 16 of them all on the fly... the spin boys were having a really tough time... All were about half a pound and the fly of the day was the white Smack em Spey...
