So I have been smallmouth fishing for a long time with the fly rod. My go to flies for big water like the susky and Delaware are clousers and poppers. My small stream flies for Brandywine size creeks are wooly buggers and small poppers. I have recently been fishing the “swimming Jimmy” with a split shot about 12 inches up the tippet. The smallies and trout are coming from a good distance away and hitting this fly like they are on a mission. I can’t believe I just discovered this fly. If you like seeing and feeling violent strikes then give this one a try!
