What kind of setup would one need for hunting bass on the fly? Could you get away with using a 5-6 weight? or do you absolutely need a 7-8 weight? Or Higher?



thanks,

Thanks for the responses! Im gearing up for the spring and would like to have some fun with ole mr bass with a fly rod. I usually use spinning gear with 10lb test...I bet even a smallish bass would really give me a run for my money on fly gear.

Since I just got done trudging along in the snow with my dog...I think fishing for bass in my local ponds might prove a tad bit silly.....

dreaming of spring...

So........what are the chances of catching bass on a 5 weight and not tiring it out to the point of death? Could I put on some 6 weight line and strong leader and tippet?
