So it looks like there is a SINGLE FLY tourny coming up here near town-- This place has perch, bass, catfish, carp-- no trout or anything-- I have never fly fished before and heard that I can fly fish without a fly rod-- What action/length rod am I looking to use ( i have all spinning reels)-- and what kind of fly should I take that is pretty good for non-fly rods? The tourny allows only ONE fly and it's a multi species tourny--
3. You can fish with only ONE fly during the duration of the tournament.
4. If the single fly is lost and cannot be retrieved, you must leave the water and return to the fly shop for fish species photo review — you may return to the creek to fish after your photo entry if you wish.
5. This will be a multi-species tournament — the winner of the tournament is the individual that catches the most species of fish on a single fly. Keep this in mind when selecting your fly.
Any info would be great! I usually fish for catfish and sometimes TX rig for bass/crank baits-- Would love to delve into fly fishing!
