Fishing the Albino Mouse Bass Fly
Although it well could be, our "Perfect Fly" Albino Mouse Bass Fly isn't an imitation of a
mouse that has escaped the laboratory of a pharmaceutical company. It isn't an imitation
of a pet mouse that has escaped its pen. It is just a white version of a field mouse that
commonly get into ponds, rivers, lakes and streams. It's an improved version of an old,
traditional imitation of a mouse.
Field mice commonly get into the water and when they do, bass, musky and pike will eat
them. It's made of deer hair, floats well and has a more realistic approach to little details
such as the ears and eyes. The most important thing, what the fly looks like from below
as a bass views it, looks almost identical to a real mouse. This fly has a long tail that
gives it action and makes it look alive to both Largemouth Bass and Smallmouth Bass.
Northern Pike and Musky will also take this fly. The fly is very durable and should last for
a long time.
This bass fly works good in clear water (as well as off colored water) even where there's
not a lot of heavy cover. That said, it's still best to cast the Albino Mouse Bass Fly near
some heavy cover in relatively shallow water. It will also raise bass from the deeps. It
works great in cover such as milfoil, hydrilla and grass beds. It also works great around
logs, tree tops and lily pads.
Let the fly sit still like a top water bass lure for several seconds before moving it. You
almost can't let it sit for too long. When you first move it, do it very slightly, just enough to
give the tail a waggle. The white color of the mouse makes it a very good fly to use in off
colored water. It works well in dingy water, even almost muddy water.
This bass fly has a nylon weed guard that prevents it from hanging in weeks and grass.
When you set the hook, set it hard and firm. It's best fished on a stiff, fast action fly rod
that's at least a 6 weight. Most anglers prefer a 7 weight floating line and fly rod for
largemouth bass and pike. Smallmouth anglers sometimes use a lighter rod. We
recommend a 6 or 7 weight for them also.
