Fly Fishing Ideas

5 posts in this topic

My buddy and I are gonna hit the Upper for awhile on Sunday morning for smallies. He's a fly angler; I'm not. As he is looking for suggestions on flys,etc. to bring, I thought I would see if anybody had any ideas.

Thanks. Good luck out there.

A white wooly bugger is good or a small (14) dark nymph fished very slow on the bottom---you want almost everything to bounce on the bottom. Don't tell but we have been doing well with a #2 hook and plastic curly tail. I use a 9 wt.

Sometimes small poppers work too, I got my biggest out of the river on a black woolybugger

You don't say if your buddy is fishing wet or Dry? I am assuming he is going after Smallies? Tell him to head over to Thorne Brothers in Fridley. Their Fly Fishing shop can set him right as to what is working this time of year? I personally like a Muddler Minnow fished top water, myself but then I have also caught plenty of Bronzebacks with a white streamer? Best bet is to either go to Thorne Brothers or cal them. They will know what is going on.

      After superbowl sounds good to me that will give it time for this slush and slop to freeze as well

      I bet that cedar lake was borderline to drive on before the warm up in the first place.
