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.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
