Fly fishing at the water temperature we have in October (50’s) using the correct fly line wil help you catch the largest bass.
At this time of the year I make sure I carry three different style fly lines in order to fish my flies at the depth required to catch bass at all depths in which they might feed.
1. I use a floating fly line in order to catch them in shallow water and when they feed on the surface.

I have compiled a list of the fly lines typically used and summarized them by the tapers (shape and weight) which I use for the various types of fly fishing conditions. Check it out….
