I'm pretty new here, but that said I went through the search and really didn't find any information on my entry so I figured I'd post and see what information I could gather.
My question is, for those who swing/strip for smallmouth, do you run trailer hook/intruder style rigs? Or am I best left to tying on a hook itself? In west Michigan where I am, I absolutely to prefer to swing, and if I can tie swing flies for both smallmouth and the migrating fish, I would prefer to do so. Of course swapping hooks when shifting seasons... but regardless of the convenience, if smallmouth will be foul-hooked more often this way then I will suck it up and tie separate flies.
