Would you like to fly fish around the Lake Martin area? This time of year (June) has hot weather that chases fish from shallow water. That’s why local anglers point their rods toward the Tallapoosa River-the headwaters of Lake Martin.
The Tallapoosa River, especially the portion from Horseshoe Bend down to Irwin Shoals, is excellent water for fly fishing for many kinds of bass and sunfish. The problem in the past has been finding someone with the gear and the know how to teach you or take you. Enter my new friend Drew Morgan. He has been killing it lately on the Tallapoosa. Check his IG for pics.
Stealth bomber, deceiver, game changer, popper, woolly bugger…what are these?
They are a few of the flies that Drew Morgan of East Alabama Fly Fishing recommends. Watch the video above and learn more about the gear he recommends for fly fishing on the Tallapoosa River. Drew covers it all- fly rod types, line types, flies themselves, etc.
