Woolly Bugger + Pond = Bass

Recommended Posts

I was trying to catch big bluegill at the pond but instead hooked into some bass! Caught a couple little ones, a couple decent ones and lost a bigger one. I used a bead head woolly bugger that I let sink through the duck weed on the surface and slowly striped it in. With a 5 wt. rod, even the little guys are a good fight, the big ones are a war.

If anyone is thinking of trying fly fishing, go for it! It's easy to pick up with a bit of practice and an effective, satisfying way to catch fish.

Very nice.

When I used to fly fish for bass on occasion, I always had very good luck with bonefish flies that imitated small crabs and shrimp. They usually come equipped with a small but stout hook to hold a big bass and the occasional catfish that I'd catch doing it.

Great tip Blue, saltwater stuff with heavy hooks are great. I like to use bright Clousers for smallmouth. 

Last night, back up north here, I was using the same bugger and got a nice smallie then lost what looked like a three plus pounder. He jumped once and threw the hook.
