My last post dealt with using the Bass Bug line to get distance when you are using large poppers. Well I have discovered there are poppers which will give you a little better distance than others. Ninety percent of the time I use the cork or balsa wood popper that has a little more weight which in turn I think gives me the distance I am looking for. I have found out when fishing extremely clear water the farther distance you can put between you and the fish: the better chance you have for the catch. This is especially true when one is fishing a pressured lake. All of us that fish with the fly rod like to see that explosive hit on top. There are all kinds of top water flies on the market, that will produce, but one of the best is the concave face popper. This popper has the ability to stir up some water when given a slight jerk with the tip of the fly rod. This action drives the bass crazy and sometimes they just nail this fly out of irritation. Take a look at the following top water flies and see if there are some you might want to mention. Fall is just around the corner and one of the best times to land large bass on the fly, can’t wait!!!
