The fly rod for walleyes is the bomb! Gas prices a few years ago encouraged me to stay closer to home for fishing. Pueblo Reservoir is the closest good fishing lake for me and I decided to figure out warm water fish. Over these few years I've landed hundreds of walleyes as well as smallmouth, wipers and largemouth. One day I might try conventional tackle, but to date the fly rod is the only way I've ever landed them. If you are a fly fisherman and have always fished for trout I would encourage anyone to learn to fly fish for walleyes. Nothing like it!
