Smallmouth Fly Fishing Weight Line

If you are in the mood for something apart from trout in a stream, an excellent game fish that is fun to catch is smallmouth bass from a vessel or a float tube. Your opportunities for an affect increase if you will get down seriously to where in actuality the fish are feeding. This really is where smallmouth fly fishing weight line comes in.

 

Weighted lines come in three categories; a floating line with a sinking tip, a heavy line extension and a hybrid fly line with a heavy line built in. Most fly เกมยิงปลา lines with a sinking tip don't go deep enough, fast enough, to work where smallmouth feed. A weighted line extension works great and will come in different sink rates in order that you need to use the one that best sinks to the level of the fish. Since smallmouth hold near a current and feed what's brought to them, a heavier weighted line works best. A hybrid line has a working line with a shooting head sinking line. The very best sink rate is 6 inches per second. There you can fish shallow water by stripping the line back quickly or, in deeper water, you can count it down seriously to the depth you want to fish in. Have a fly shop fit your rod with the right amount of shooting head to fit your rod. You will have the ability to produce prodigious casts with a correctly balanced shooting head.

Smallmouth bass have the tendency to live in colder water than their largemouth cousins. They like areas where a stream incurs a lake or underwater springs. However in June when they spawn they'll nest in still, warmer water, often protected by a log or several other cover. Smallmouth become very aggressive when guarding a nest and will strike at whatever looks threatening to the nest. After the fry hatch each goes off feed for a while and fishing slows down.

 

The very best flies to used in fishing for Smallmouth could be very surprising. While they hold near an incoming stream nymphs work quite well. A Bitch Creek, Dragonfly nymph, or a large Hare's Ear should bring strikes. Cast up current and allow the weighted line bring the nymph down seriously to the particular level where they feed. When there is no stream inlet then use a frog, shad, sculpin, black woolly bugger, and muddler minnow. Don't strip your line too quickly, but at irregular intervals, adding life to your bass fly.
