WB – Fly Fishing Keystone Smallmouth, Jake Villwock Edition – April '18

Video of Michael Evanko and Jake Villwock fly fishing for large spring run (pre-spawn) smallmouth bass on a tributary of the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. This video was shot on April 28, 2018 on publicly accessible water. Evanko and Villwock used a drift boat to cover several of miles of water in seven hours of fishing. The flows were around 600CFS and the water visibility was 3ft. A majority of the bass in this video were caught on Jake Villwock’s version of Blaine Chocklett’s “Game Changer” streamer. Villwock’s pattern uses feathers and a “Roamer” head. Villwock does not make this streamer pattern available to the public as it is time intensive and the materials are costly.
