“River Smallmouth Fishing” is the latest by Holschlag, a bronzeback guru who also wrote “Stream Smallmouth Fishing” and “Smallmouth Fly Fishing.” This latest book is Holschlag’s best. The 358-page tome is packed with how-to tips and tactics from a guy who has spent 45 years in basically a single-minded pursuit of one species of fish. There’s also a great section on top river smallie destinations.”

“Tim’s new book is packed throughout with an amazing array of smallmouth knowledge gleaned from Tim’s many years on the water. By itself, River Smallmouth Fishing is an extraordinary treatise on how to catch the amazing bronzeback, and when coupled with Tim’s Smallmouth Fly Fishing book, anglers have it all, from topwater to bottom and all levels in between. Simply amazing!”

Tim Holschlag says ...
Tim Holschlag“As you know, I have had an absolute lifelong passion for smallmouth bass and the rivers they live in. These fish are so amazing, and their river environment is simply spectacular.

Catching these fish on artificials, whether lures or flies, takes considerable skill. And river current makes it even more challenging. I’m very proud of this new book. It’s full of updated smallmouth information that will make both your fly fishing and spin fishing more fun and successful.

After nearly 50 years of smallmouthing, I’m still learning new things about rivers and smallies. Everything new that I’ve learned in the 5 years since I wrote “Smallmouth Fly Fishing” is packed into this new book.

“This is an accomplishment of which you should be very proud, and I believe you are leading the pack nationally.”
— Dr. Thomas F. Waters, Professor Emeritus, University of Minnesota
