Sub Surface Bass Flies for Sale Online

Bass are opportunistic feeders, and many subsurface bass flies will work when fly fishing for bass. You don’t need to stress over which subsurface fly to use in terms of what they’re hungry for. While we do “match the hatch” even for bass in trying to imitate what they are feeding on, like crayfish and different baitfish species, subsurface bass flies often are taken because of the action they create.

Try to come up with a pattern to catch bass just like tournament pros. Pay attention to size, color and the location where you caught a bass and try to replicate that on the water you are fishing.

Subsurface Flies for Smallmouth Bass

Imitation of bottom-dwelling prey such as crayfish or leeches and different baitfish with smallmouth bass subsurface flies will help you have success and catch more smallies. When imitating crayfish, use a weighted crayfish imitation such as Pat Ehlers’ Long Strip Crayfish for fly fishing smallmouth bass and use a varied strip and twitch tactics to tease bass into biting.

Subsurface Flies for Largemouth Bass

Contact bass fly fishing expertsLargemouth bass, like smallmouth bass, can be very opportunistic feeders. Streamers such as a Pat Ehlers’ Sunfish imitation fly are a good choice, as sunfish are a big part of a largemouth’s diet. Cast and retrieve a Clouser Minnow and fish it like a conventional jig. The Clouser Minnow is one of the most effective flies ever created.

Like the smallmouth bass, largemouth rely on crayfish as a primary food source. An impressionistic imitation crayfish fly such as the Ball Peen Craw is a great choice to fool largemouth bass with a fly.
