Strip Casting for Bass
Strip-casting for Black Bass If you have never learned bait-casting for black bass and for any reason do not care to take up that method, a very good substitute and a very efficient angling method may be found in strip-casting. It may be said with truth, also, that at times strip-casting is more efficient than casting from the reel, whether or not you have mastered the use of the short bait-casting rod and the quadruple casting reel. Variety, too, is the spice of angling, and often a change to the fly-rod—which is used for strip-casting—is quite welcome after continued use of the orthodox short casting rod.
Strip-casting for bass is adapted to both river and lake fishing, and either natural or artificial baits may be used. Since the advent of the numerous and generally very successful artificial baits as the result of the popularity of bait-casting, these are most used. The chances are that in order to take up strip-casting you will have to buy very little extra tackle—that is, if you are a fly-caster.
