Smallmouth Bass Fly Fishing Tackle and
The fly fishing tackle and equipment you use for smallmouth bass can make the difference in success or failure.
Smallmouth Bass Fly Rods
We think the best smallmouth bass fly fishing rod is a 9 feet long, fast action rod that balances with a seven weight line. The
fly rod needs to have a strong tip to maneuver large heavy nymphs and streamers. The fast action helps to cast long
distances and in strong wind. Bulky surface deer hair bugs, a top water smallmouth favorite.
You may want to consider using a lighter rod. A 9 foot long, fast action six weight rod would be a good choice. It too, will cast
long distances and in strong wind but it won't handle large, heavy flies and streamers as well as the seven weight rod. It will
handle many, if not the majority of smallmouth bass flies you use.
The rod should be stored in a cloth bag and an aluminum tube except when you are using it fishing. This helps prevent
accidental rod breakage, particularly around your vehicle.
