Fly Fishing For Bass – Why Not?

Here are some popular bass lures for fly fishing.

Here are some popular bass lures for fly fishing.

 Normally when you think fly fishing you think trout. Historically fly fishing is reserved for mountian streams and rivers. Fishing for bass is normally done the old way with conventional lures and baits. Here’s a twist, how about fly fishing for Bass?

So grab a fly fishing lure and head to your favorite fishing spot!

Bass Fly Fishing I left Los Angeles to go fly fishing at “the Canals” My flies: chartreuse/white and orange/white clousers (I found these two colors work the best), reddish crayfish, foam spiders (normally used for panfish, but the smallies attack it like crazy, EXPLOSION CITY! ), and a black pencil popper (no name for this fly I just tied what I think might work) I made. I lost count after 40 bass. All and all it was an awesome day of fishing. My next video will be of the Colorado River. All my fish were released unharmed. So GET LOST PETA!!! I had to remake this because my girlfriend thinks my videos are the most boring thing on earth. WOMEN }:| by Jerry Phan 😀

    This probably isn’t “PC fly fishing” But I slay smallies with a Berkley Yum Crawfish soft bait. I rig heavy dumb bell eyes on a hook. I rig the baits accordingly while I fish. Sometimes I add a big split shot right at my improved clench not. I fish them slow with the ocassional dart and a lot of pause. I use a sage xi3 9wt. with a sage 4580cf reel and full sinking line. I love the reel becasue the spools are light and affordable. I can change lines really easily from floating to sinking.
