Frequently Asked Questions

What weight fly rod is best for bass?

For largemouth and smallmouth bass, we recommend a 6WT, 7WT, or 8WT fly rod, depending on the size of the flies you’re swinging. Choose a 6WT rod if you’re fishing only smallmouth since your flies will be smaller and slimmer. Choose a 7WT or 8WT rod if you’re fishing both or only largemouth.

What type of fly line do you use for bass?

Use a full sinking fly line or sink-tip line with 0X or 1X leader.

Do you need a sinking fly line for bass?

Yes: You need a sinking fly line or sink-tip fly line for bass to drop your fly down where your target lurks. If you’re fishing shallower waters, a sink-tip fly line should be adequate. For deeper waters, select the full sinking fly line.

What size leader do you use for bass fly fishing?

Use 0X or 1X leader for bass.

Do you use tippet when you fly fish for bass?

Yes, anglers use tippet when fly fishing for bass. Determine the size tippet you need using the “Rule of 3:” Divide your fly size by 3. For example, a size 18 fly requires a 6x tippet.
