Bass On the Fly: Another "Good Walk Spoiled"

June 14, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

“As with that ‘good walk spoiled’ sport [golf], you use your hands, forearms, biceps and back to really cast / drive far, but with close-range bass-fly action near lily pads it’s a short cast (like a putt) that will turn the trick. If possible, you want that fly to plop on a lily pad, so that you can gently ease it off, and twitch it above the imagined bass.” Steve Hickoff gives an excellent description of what fly fishing for bass is really all about on Fosters.com.
