Fly fishing for bass

Sun Sep 26, 2004 11:47 am

I hate to point anyone in the direction of anything not on this forum and I guess you may have already seen it but if not, I think a few of you may be interested in some postings on the UK SWFF forum ( Look for "Bass Fishing Intro" by Myfish in August. Even the seasoned SWFF posters seem impressed. It's under the General SWFF Board and seems some good stuff but it is Jersey related. The jumping crab looked interesting!

I'm hoping someone can come up with something similar for Ireland! Anyone out there doing anything similar or do you think the tactics used in Jersey just won't work in Ireland?

all i would say would b that if u stick to sandeel imatations u will not go too far wrong, clouser minnows, decievers anda few poppers will c ya thru most sessions. i wouldnt bother with the other patterns untill u r well into the flyfishing. other tip is to keep the fly moving nice and quickly, especially the poppers u will never b too fast for a bass but if ur too slow they will follow it but strike less often.
