Default Re: Question- Leader Lengths/ Fly sizes????

a 5wt rod is not ideal for bass. You can catch fish but a 6wt would be perfect or even a 7wt. With a 5wt you wont be able to cast large heavy flies that you will need for bass.

and your leader length/tippet size depends on were your fishing. Are you fishing a lake, pond, stream, river?

I would guess your fishing a lake and for a lake you want a longer leader and probably a sinking tip or full sinking line to get your fly down to the fish
