Thread: bass flies.

  1. Default bass flies.

    i have been fly fishing for the past 2 years, really only when i go up to my grandpa's house.(i go like 7 times a year) and i really have been getting into it lately and i wanna start fly fishing more then just fishing with a spinning rod.

    i just wanted to know some good fly patterns for largemouth bass.
    you should never get mad over losing a fish on a fly rod.
    you should be happy enough just knowing that you
    tricked that fish into hitting an artificial fly.

  2. Default Re: bass flies.

    wooly buggers are a great place to start. I tye bunny leaches in chartruese, white and black (with and without weight). Hoppers in the summer. poppers from Wal-mart will also get you started. Any large attractor type trout flies will probably work.

    Clousers are a great fly for Bass as are v worms. Leech patterns are good, crayfish and poppers.

    Do a google search for bass flies and you'll more flies than you can shake a stick at. Invictaflies.com and riverbum.com have some cool bass flies. I've had great success throwing red and white or red and black.

    I like to use flies no longer than 3" at best. Anything subsurface fished slowly will catch fish. My favorites are Buggers, Cat's Whiskers, and Clousers. However, if you use a small #4-6 popper or slider, you will catch fewer fish, but it will all be visual.

    I was recently reintroduced to spinning lures for bass fishing and realized that bass don't care so much about color and pattern, so much as presentation (is it deep enough, is it moving like a minnow or small bait fish would move), and overall flashiness (will it catch a bass's eye in a muddy lake or a less-than-clear stream). Just look at some of the more successful spinning lures, for instance the rooster tail, which consists of a spoon, a hook, and sometimes some tail feathers. A fly that's flashy that you present like a minnow has a good chance of working, as well as a fly with lots of marabou. Marabou wiggles around so much in water that it will catch a fish's eye regardless of if there's actual flash tied with it.

    That said, clousers, buggers (from white/sparkle to all black), sculpins, and various other streamers have all worked for me on bass.
    The other flies, n., pl.
    1. dry flies, nymphs, emergers, terrestrials, streamers, etc.
    2. What I use when a black #10 woolly bugger isn't catching.
