Default Re: Question for bass fishers

One thing I see completely ignored is what you should do after the miss... Instead of bringing your line in and recasting... just flip out a roll cast.. will put the fly back another 5' or so and will keep you in the range of that bass... no reason to waste time stripping whatever line you still have out on the water... I miss a strike.. I roll cast and try again.. usually ending in success... took a whole 20-30sec to put my fly back where it needs to be with minimal effort

[quote=nick k;558081][I'm going to give you a bit of advice here, and I don't want you to take it the wrong way, because I'm constantly reiterating it to myself when I fish:

Change your damn fly!/quote]
I'm good with this and I'd say your right.
I used that fly the majority of the day.I had all kinds of excuses not to change,windy,rainy,caught a few with this fly,the black flies were crazy...etc.
Guess I will have to learn to slow up a bit.
I've heard patience is a virtue,never really thought about it before but probably fits in here somewhere.
