It takes all kinds…!
Bass, pike, muskie and even carp make worthy adversaries on the end of your fly line. Turn your attention to your local fisheries and you’ll find you’ve been missing out. Throw a big frog pattern in a bass pond in springtime and watch the water erupt. Strip a big streamer for a pike or muskie — just make sure you’ve got some steel tippet in your leader system. Stalk a cruising carp and you’ll find out what finicky means. What we’re saying is, you’ve got trophies in your own backyard. It’s time to explore it.
