FLOAT FOR SMALLMOUTH
SMALLMOUTH BASS ARE QUITE SIMPLY THE PERFECT FISH FOR THE FLY ANGLER. THEY ARE AGGRESSIVE, VORACIOUS, AND FIGHT LIKE NO OTHER FRESHWATER FISH. WE LOVE THEM.
WE FISH FOR SMALLMOUTH OUT OF A WESTERN-STYLE DRIFT BOAT. 6-8 WEIGHT RODS AND FLOATING LINES ARE THE TOOLS OF THE GAME. THE BEST MONTHS TO CHASE SMALLIES IN WISCONSIN ARE MAY, JUNE, JULY, AUGUST, AND SEPTEMBER. UNLIKE MOST FLY FISHING SPECIES, SMALLMOUTH LOVE HOT WEATHER, MAKING MID SUMMER PRIME TIME.
IF YOU'VE NEVER FLY FISHED FOR SMALLMOUTH, YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON ONE OF THE MOST FUN EXPERIENCES YOU CAN HAVE WITH A FLY ROD. WE WOULD LOVE TO HOOK YOU UP!
