Mention fly fishing and the mind immediately conjures visions of making long, flawless casts to Wyoming cutthroats, Pennsylvania brown trout or big brookies in Labrador.

In this video posted on the Lake Country Angler Facebook page, however, noted fly fisherman Mickey Johnson illustrates that you don’t have to travel to distant waters to enjoy fly fishing at its finest—and that warm-water gamefish, such as smallmouth bass, are excellent quarry for fishermen wielding the long rod.

Even if you’re not a fly fisherman, you’re going to enjoy watching this montage of hooksets, as well as a few misses, that Johnson recorded in one morning’s fishing on a local river.
