Bass flies are tied on much larger hooks and many believe that they would be better on smaller sizes. For the northern black bass they are usually tied on Nos. 2, 4 and 6 hooks, and No. 4 is most used. For southern waters, where the large mouth bass only are found, and they of very large size, flies are tied on Nos. 1/0, 3/0 and 5/0 hooks. These large sizes are also used in combination with spinners and spoons, for trolling. Sproat hooks are the favorite style for bass flies.
