Re: Hanging up in Lily Pads

Has anyone considered making a popper with an upside-down hook? Not sure if it is possible, but that could help a little with the lilly pad problem. Thats how some of my baitcasting frogs are, which...

Re: BIG Bass fly casting help

Actually, the Sage bass line is lighter than a 9wt.. or at least lighter than my 9wt.. I would recommend a longer rod for a beginner, but after you get used to the short rod, it becomes pretty fun....

Re: Warmwater Flies

Ill give those a try! All i have is a deer hair mouse.

Ive always wondered, does popping a big fly scare other fish from feeding? I tend to save my big divers for last so I dont scare the other...

Re: Warmwater Flies

My uncle lives in Ohio and swears by Muddlers. Its about the only thing he uses for bass. I just like the fact that its sub surface, but close to the surface. Bass around here go for it on a cool...

Re: BIG Bass fly casting help

It depends on how big of a fly you want to cast. I have a Sage LMB rod (which is technically a 9wt) and i like it a lot. Double hauling is very important with that short of a rod, BUT, its so stiff...

Re: Reel advice

I have an Echo Ion reel and LOVE it. The drag is great and it feels like a high quality reel. Its pretty big, which i dont mind, but you may be different. Mine is a 6/7 wt but i use it for 9wt and my...

Re: Good 9wt rods

I just bought the freshwater outbound short to save some money. And the colors were better suited for fishing around here. The bass around here are pretty smart.

Re: Bluegills are pure joy on a fly rod!

Awesome! Ive found that bluegills and sunfish are much more aggressive than bass for topwater flies around here. I need a 3wt to make it more fun to catch them. They are small but can put up a good...

Re: 7 weights....why no love?

Ive owned a 7 wt and I liked it. I think people tend to have only odd or even wt fly rods in their quiver because there is a bigger difference between a 5wt and a 7wt than a 6wt and a 7wt. Im...

Re: Good 9wt rods

Re: Good 9wt rods

I think the size of bass depends on where you live. The growth period of bass in warmer areas is longer and they grow quicker, but they dont necessarily live longer. The wt of your rod depends on...

Re: Good 9wt rods

Would a 6 or 8wt be a little smarter? I already have a Sage Bass, so i dont have to worry about casting the big poppers. I just cant decide what weight to go with. For saltwater, Id mainly be fishing...
