I'm getting back into fly fishing and have started tying a few flies. Have been experimenting with these streamers. Hopefully a hungry white bass will think they look appetizing. . I'm partial to the way the "wooly" white and chartreuse clousers look. I hope they work. What do yall think?

Those will do it! It's best to have a variety in the arsenal for when you're out there, different colors, sizes, designs, weights. You'll be able to zero-in on what they like. I like that you have some hackle streamers in there, I never would have thought that white bass would go for that, but I was proved wrong last season by my fishing buddy.

This is one of the best whitebass seasons on the Yegua in at least four years as the conditions came together just at the right time.
We have been following the whitebass all winter as they progressed up into the creek on the way to the spawning waters.
The bass are about to get the party started with both males and big females way up the creek.
This clouser type fly is what we have had the best luck with so far. The tactics to find and catch the bass have changed as the fish become more active and the water warms and clears.
The spawning should start any day now and that will require another adjustment to catch these fish but you won't catch any sitting at home!

Those should work great. If you are getting short strikes, then shorten the length on a fly and try that. I don’t think you will have any issues and I can’t wait to see the pictures. popcorn
