Default Re: Bass Fly Help

i dont know about the satwater fish your talking about but for bass in the smaller creeks you can make your 5wt work fine.yes you could overline your rod one size. ive also found that in small to medium creeks you dont need those giant flies that you see people tout for bass.i catch tons of bass up to 3 pounds in farm ponds and creeks on size 10 poppers and size 6 buggers with my four weight. that also lets the sunfish and 12 inch bass strut theyre stuff.just remember to slow your stroke down a little and open up your loops with more wind resistant flies.its fun to own alot of fly rods but for the average guy who works hard just to make a living a couple rods will cover most of what you need for freshwater.may not be the ideal tool for every situation but wil get you by.
