   "This DVD is just what I have been hoping for. It was indeed worth the wait. I have watched it over and over. I already tried twitching the rod tip, like you show, along with a strike indicator, and both worked great! You are truly a master at your craft. Thanks again for producing such a great DVD!" — Dick Simpspn

Smallmouth Bass Flies, Tackle and Techniques Like You've Never Seen Before

Besides spectacularly beautiful fly fishing scenes with plenty of fish-catching action, you'll see how your fly performs underwater, how to use your rod tip to animate the fly, how to use the line belly to work your fly and why you must use a strike indicator for warmwater fly fishing. You'll see live-action fish strikes in slow motion, showing exactly how your indicator moves when the fish hits.

   "Awesome DVD!!! This really is THE video on smallie flyfishing! There is nothing else that even gets close as far as covering the whole gamut-- flies, tackle, rigging, targets and detailed techniques-- topwater fishing, mid-depth, and all the way down to bottom-bouncing. You even include cold water fishing. I just can't believe how much you've packed into a 70-minute DVD!" — Mike Giffith

   "Best Smallmouth DVD ever-- I loved it. Here are some of the reasons why:
** Excellent underwater footage of the twitched fly moving (as a beginner I appreciate seeing what it should look like-- I can figure out how to do it from there).
** Great examples of the effects of strikes on the indicator. (At the school, I remember you saying how you wished a fish would hit on the hop so I could see what it looks like-- now I know).
** The video of the crayfish hop was great. (I would have never figured it out from just the book.)

All in all, I really enjoyed it and believe you did an excellent job of condensing the school information into an easy to understand DVD. This DVD truly is the "greatest thing since sliced bread!" — Matt Bemer

I have watched many fishing videos, and have not seen any that give out such detailed information and well-illustrated points on techniques, and that are all proven tactics for smallmouth. It is very organized and easy to follow each step of the way. No BS, just good instruction. This will be a hit with anyone serious about smallmouth fly fishing." — Dan Johnson

Smallmouth Bass in South Africa

Tim on the Groot River
in South Africa

Tim Holschlag has "gone fishing" again, this time in South Africa! He spent 3 weeks in South Africa during November, on a cross-country tour fishing for a variety of species including smallmouth bass, a non-native fish there. South Africa is about the only place outside of North America that has smallmouth bass, and Tim will fish wherever smallies swim!

Fly fishers in South Africa use Tim Holschlag's book, "Smallmouth Fly Fishing" as a manual for how to catch smallies (He has also been quoted in The Complete Fly Fisher magazine there). So Holschlag was invited to take a fly-fishing tour of their country. Besides smallmouth bass, Tim fished for a variety of other species, in both fresh and salt water, with South Africa's top fly-fishing experts. This other angling included catching enormously powerful Yellowfish in the Vaal River and Rainbow Trout in remote mountain streams.


While in South Africa, Tim Holschlag also gave presentations at the Fly Tiers Guild in Johannesburg and the Cape Piscatorial Society (Cape Town) on "Warmwater Fly Fishing in North America."
