Apart from this, how do you fly fish for bass in a pond?
Apart from, what weight fly rod is best for bass? “You can catch bass on a standard 8-foot, 6-weight trout rod and people do it all the time,” Rosenbauer points out. “But if you want a dedicated bass rod for either (largemouth or smallmouth) it's probably best to go with a 9-foot 8-weight rod.
Further to this, can you catch bass with flies?
Yes, you can catch bass all day long with conventional gear. But finding similar such success becomes significantly more difficult on the fly during daylight hours, since your presentation options are fairly limited. You'll only be able to cast so far, and you'll only be able to fish so deep.
What size flies for largemouth bass?
If there's no wind or heavy weed cover, a five or six weight will do, but for flinging larger, bulky, feathery flies in wind, go heavier, up to an eight weight. Use a fly line that will fit the rod, and a weight – forward line will cast large flies best.

Can you fly fish in a pond? The short answer – yes. You can fly fish anywhere you'd use traditional angling techniques, including ponds, lakes, and other bodies of water. Fly fishing a pond or lake is different than fly fishing a river but there are many similar techniques and equipment.
In short, 5-weight fly rods are widely considered to be the best all-around choice for anglers; and for good reason. From making delicate casts on small mountain streams, to fighting 20-inch trout on larger rivers and lakes, 5-weight fly rods are versatile enough to handle a wide range of fly fishing scenarios.
Yep, as stated a 5 wt will be fine. I use from a 3 wt to a 10 wt for bass. The reason people like heavier lines for bass is not because the fight requires a stronger rod, it's because those big air-resistant poppers and bugs that bass like are easier to throw with a heavier line.
Crankbaits, lipless crankbaits and jigs slowly dragged across the bottom are all effective on deep, early-spring bass. Bass moving toward spawning coves will stop to feed at isolated cover such as rocks or fallen trees. Even old weed patches from last year will hold fish.
You can identify key areas of a body of water that might hold fish and start to develop a plan for a day of fishing before you've even hit the water. When looking at lake or river maps online, try to identify points, creeks, ledges and other features where bass like to hang out.
