i do find most times the fly rod takes more pan fish than other set ups, often out fishing bait, which is a bit of a surprise. the only tricky bit is tying ther liitlest flies on - my eyes are not what they used to be...

flys for mackerel fishing work awesome! what a ball! andf they are big flies with easy to see eyes...lol!

any favorite patterns or hooks Avid Yak Fisher?

If you are fly fishing from a Sit-in I would think a longer rod will help keep your back cast off the water.

Wind and prey would be a factor also when choosing which rod to use.

The one thing I do is make sure any fishing rod I use reach over the front and back of my kayak.

I've hear d of people sitting down on the lake shore and tying up some flies, but keeping a live duckling on board for fresh hackle material is right out there!  ;D

For bass and pike I like the saltwater hooks. Poppers for bass. Pike I use flies tied with rabbit and in different colours. Pan-fish I use dry fly hooks for foam spiders, deer hair beetles and ant patterns. I also pinch hooks on all my flies. Cheers!
