I made the short video below with GoPro footage from a solid day of pre-spawn fishing for Smallmouth Bass on the Kankakee River right here in the greater Chicagoland area with local guide Will Winans. The video reacts to a question that anyone who's worked in a fly shop has heard from plenty of naive customers. Check it out, and then check out Will's guide service at www.bigriverfly.com. If you're going to be in Chicago or nearby this year, I highly recommend a day on the water with Will. He's a friendly and knowledgable guide who puts clients first. Here's a glimpse at fishing this great river:
I hope you enjoy the video. Please take a moment and check out another project of mine -- Motion Flyfishing -- at www.motionflyfishing.com. I'm running high quality flyfishing instruction and super fun group trips. Keep up on on instagram & Twitter: @motionflyfish. More on this to come!
