Rods

AFTMA 4 for small bass up to AFTMA 7 for the bigger ones. Depending on the water (small streams vs big lakes) you'll know what you can run into.

Lines

Depending on surface or sub-surface fishing, and the depth you'll be fishing, go for a floating, intermediate or sinking line.

Bass on the fly is known around the world. From the US to Scandinavia, from poppers on the surface to belly boat fishing with a sinking line: the possibilities to catch these little hunters are endless.

It's difficult to indicate what the best way is to catch bass, because is very much depends on the water and the temperature. There are some generic pointers though: they are active predator fish (they won't lie still until something edible swims by like a pike does) and they can often be found where there's structure in the water. Look for poles, bends, jetties, fallen trees, etc. Don't worry about stripping fast, if they see a fly they want, they'll come and get it.
