The lures of Billy Westmorland

I was reading a old classic book this winter, Them Old Brown Fish, by Billy Westmorland, and it struck me.  One of the greatest Smallmouth Bass fishermen of all time relied on three simple lures to catch most of his big bass.  And I mean big!!!  A couple ten pounders and a mid-nine pounder.  Three of the top 25 largest Smallmouth bass ever caught were taken by Westmorland.

What I realized is that these three lures could be made with Do-It molds.  Blade baits; Westmoreland can be quoted that the blade bait may be one of the greatest Smallmouth baits ever made... Cut Face Tail Spinners: not only accounted for his biggest fish but one that got away that he claimed could go 12 pounds...And, The Hoss Fly Jig:  Aspirin head, craft hair body, Split tailed eel pork bait on the rear.

So I did a little piece on the Lures of Billy Westmorland and some instructions on tying the Hoss Fly Jig.

If you are coming from either Midwest Outdoors or the Do-It website, thank you for stopping in.

Hey Marc!

Just checked out your blog site - nice! Good to see that you are still active and doing new stuff. I wanted to show you some pics of some weedless buck tails my father started tying last summer. I don't seem to have a current email address for you - could you drop me a note at and I will send some links to the pics. Would love to get your opinion on them.

Can't wait for opening day!
