Re: Bass Fly Help
you can get by with what you've got for bass. the bass in the lake down the street from me are pretty small so i chase them with 3 and 4 wt. rods. i can throw a pretty decent sized popper and wooly bugger with the 4wt.
if it was me i would get the largest/heaviest fly i planned on throwing and see if the setup you have now is capable of casting it the distances you need. if it works don't change anything, if it comes close going up to a 6wt. bass taper might work, it it seems way off i don't think changing line will help. i have a 6wt that i use to throw any of the bigger deer hair flies that the 4wt. has a hard time with.
