All Kinds of Fish Eat Flies
Reading my tips here you probably see that I fish primarily for trout. I love trout. They are beautiful, live in awesome places, and are a challenge. So sometimes I have to remind myself that all kinds of fish will eat a fly.
This year I have plans to chase the majestic golden freshwater bonefish (carp) more. Carp are incredible fly fishing targets. They are tough to sneak on and tough to cast to and they are really powerful fighters. I am also going to fish largemouth bass and big bluegills in May, which is awesome. I have plans to fish for tiger muskies and smallmouth and will do a saltwater trip for Roosterfish if things work out. These are just the tip of the iceberg as far as fly fishing goes.
One of the great beauties of fly fishing is that no matter where in the world you are you probably have fish near you that will eat a fly. I think that sometimes people focus on trout and forget to just get out and catch fish on a fly rod. Look for areas near you that have fish, whatever type they are, and then make plans to catch them with a fly rod.
