Here’s a tip on how to use your float tube to troll while fly fishing small ponds and lakes. This method is best if used with a sinking line or sink tip line.
Keep your rod tip in the line…in fact it should be just above your fins. The motion from your fins will put movement in the fly and you can vary your depth by the speed at which you kick. I also put short strips every few seconds to give the fly more action. When you have stripped in your line, make another long cast and cover more water.
This is also a great way to search for fish; what depth are they at and what kind of structure are they holding in? When you find them…you can then back off and fish that structure. All you need is a float tube and a little technique.
