This week we're exploring the wide open world of warm water fly fishing, and not just for bass. We talk about landlocked stripers and gar and bowfin and northern redhorse--and especially shad and carp. Basically, it's about finding the fish and experimenting with retrieves--tackle and flies are the least of your worries. Most of us have some sort of warm water close to home, so it's like that old Stephen Stills song, "if you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with".
In the fly box, we answer phone calls about how to measure the length of a fly cast, how long lines, leaders and backing last, keeping fish for the table and when to fly and when to spin.
