Fishing the Natural Mouse Bass Fly
Our "Perfect Fly" Natural Mouse Bass Fly is an improved version of an old, traditional
imitation of a mouse. Field mice commonly get into the water and bass 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.
It's best to cast the Natural Mouse Bass Fly near some heavy cover in relatively shallow
water. It will also raise bass from the deeps provided there is cover nearby but it is deadly
in 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. As its name indicates, It looks natural enough to fool the
bass just siting still. When you first move it, do it very slightly, just enough to give the tail
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.
The Natural Mouse fly works great in slightly off colored water but will also work in clear
water if it is presented near heavy cover where the bass can hide. It's also known to
produce some very large bass, pike and musky.
