Video: Chasing Bass and Gar Among the Cypress Trees


Written by: Phil Monahan

Drew Ross–a.k.a Looknfishy–sent us this great video of fishing for largemouth bass from a kayak in the kind of water where you don’t normally see a fly rod. Chucking a streamer to trees, stumps, and the like looks like a serious good time, though. As Drew puts it,

Fly fishing in a cypress swamp isn’t for everyone. Most days–no, every day–I’m the only one throwing streamers among the cypress trees. Part of the fun is just getting into those tight spots. The other part is never knowing what will eat.
