Does anyone do a lot of bass fly fishing on the lower St.John river near Oromocto?
If so do you have any pattern suggestions so far small bass bugs and Dalhberg divers seem to work ok but are there any others you've found to work well?

I've had amazing fishing with a zonker muddler, large muddler with a rabbit strip but/tail, it floats and swims just bellow the surface, some times combined with a sink tip to get down a little deeper.

Ok thanks I'll give it a try.

If the muddlers don't work there's a couple of more productive parterns you should try. I get the most bass on a yellow wooly worm with a red tail. Then there's the foam flies, especially gurgulers. The black and red work best closely followed by the yellow and orange, then the green and yellow. Some tiers add foam frog legs to their gurgulers, but I'm not sure how much it increases their effectiveness. In either pattern they float well and send up a nice spray of water which attracts the bass.

just tie a bunch of green or natural deer hair on a hook, cut it in an oval shape, to mimic a frog or mouse. use three strips at a time, and use very long pauses
