BFS style fishing has always been a technique I have been very intrigued to try.
With the recommendations of a buddy, I dove in, purchasing a rod and reel. Line choice was next. They told me to check out VARIVAS line. Motivation. Guidance. So I did my homework and looked into it.
I chose the VARIVAS Super Premium PE 6.5 lb braid, Tournament Pink color with a 3 lb leader. To my surprise my first outing was a success! Right away, I landed two small largemouth bass on the new setup. The castability and all out smoothness of the setup had me hooked.
Patience. Education. Experience. I did manage to lose my lure due to “adjusting” to this new style, as I’m more of a big swimbait angler. Humbling. But, hey, every time out is a learning experience.
When targeting larger fish, I plan to upgrade to a stronger rated line; as I felt this current line to be very delicate. Definitely need to adjust and fine tune some more. Looking forward to getting the hang of this finesse swimbait game.
