Bass Fly Fishing – How to Do it, Tips

Bass can also hear extremely well and feel the vibrations that are produced from any movement in the water. They know by instinct which vibrations are produced by their natural food source. Fly fishing with lures that imitate these sounds can help you to be very successful. There are many different types of flies that can be used to fish for bass. The type you choose will depend on where you are fishing and the time of day you go out on the water. Keep in mind that bass will not eat anything they do not like the taste or smell of. Therefore, it is very important that you make sure your scent is not on the fly that you use or the bass will not take the bait or they will usually spit it back out if they do take it. Where Bass Can Be Found

If you know where to look for the bass it can make a big difference in the amount of success you enjoy. Since bass need oxygen to live and grow you will find them located in areas where the water is high in oxygen. Of course, oxygen is produced by the water itself but you will find higher levels of oxygen in water where there are plants and other vegetation. As a general rule, warmer waters produces less oxygen than colder water does so the temperature will also play a big role in the number of bass found in each location.

You will be able to find bass around weeds, rocks, docks, trees and stumps. In the early morning and late evenings you will find more smallmouth bass in the shallows but they will go out to deeper water during the heat of the day where the water is cooler. The largemouth bass tend to stay in the warmer and shallower water at all times.

Another big difference between the two is that the largemouth bass seem to prefer waters that are calm and still like ponds and lakes while the smallmouth bass prefer the moving waters of streams and rivers. By learning as much as you can about the habits of the bass you will have a better idea of the best bait and flies to use. As anglers are learning the benefits that bass fly fishing has to offer, you can expect it to continue to grow in popularity over the next several years.)
