Fly Fishing Instruction; 3 Wt for Smallmouth Here in NW Wisconsin

Hey folks …. Jeff here with a really neat video. If you haven’t yet tried ‘going-small’ while fishing for smallmouth …. give it a go. There is nothing better than fighting a big smallmouth in river current with a smaller rod … in this case, I use my 3 weight along with floating line.

I give you some specific hands on fly fishing instruction on how to better land these beauties using one of my reverse tied bucktail flies. I think you will find this approach both novel and very productive; especially in these low water, late season outings where the fish are lounging around and looking for a big meal … while having to expend very little energy.

I love using the smaller rods … used to do this a lot, however, my shoulder has progressively taken a turn for the worse and casting a long line with the shorter rods can literally be a handful. On this small stream I was able to get close and the 3 weight was the right application.

As always, you can leave a comment below or reach out to me at flyfishingwithjeff@gmail.com. I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner. Hope you have a great end to Summer….
