Do you have a solid fly fishing bass technique you can lay out for me?

Fly fishing for bass is undoubtedly an art and one of those things that you have to almost discover how to do yourself. There are many fly fishing techniques that work on bass out there and you ultimately have to figure out which ones are best for you, but I can give you a good idea of where to start. Firstly, ge into the head of the bass itself. You cannot just sit there all day and wait for a bite. Instead, you have to stalk your prey. This is what bass do. They wll actively seek out their meals, and you have to do the same. Try to find where the largest school is or the best hiding places and you will find that bass fishing is far more effortless than you would imagine. That is not to say it is easy but it need not be as difficult as it initially appears to be. In terms of the fly fishing technique, casting from a boat works well, especially if you cast your line every few minutes to get sustained interest from the bass. Try to alter the weight of the flies after a few casts if it does not seem to be working initially and then be sure to reel the line back in incredibly slowly. This will pique the interest of the individual bass, who will then follow the line and may just bite. Use a light rod so this is made as easy as possible, especially if you do get a bite.
