Great Info RollCasts!!! Maybe you will have to show me a little thing or 2 on the Fox for getting some eyes or smallies on my 4/5 weight rod :lol:Rollcast said:Welcome!
Basic clousers work really well on the smallies of the Fox.
Colors I like are minnow patterns white/grey or white blue and chartreuse or yellow when the water is more turbid.
They are easy to tie and materials are cheap.
The clouser has a bead head or weighted eyes and typical water I fish is <6ft deep so I use tapered or WF line and not weighted.
Wait until it warms up, then hit the river with surface poppers.
Thats a blast!!
You do need a bit more room to cast, but I can hit spots easier vs casting.
Good luck, once you get the hang of it you'll be using the flyrod more than spinning.
