Silvers are among the best fly rod fish in fresh water. Aggressive, acrobatic, abundant in many areas, they are the perfect fish for beginners to hone their skills on. In this video Trevor Covich lays out much of what you need to know to target, hook and land these fish successfully. An OPST Commando Head makes a terrific line for silver fishing because it can be cast with either a sinking or a floating tip. For fishing on the surface with poppers, try our Commando Floating Tips in either 7.5 or 10 foot lengths. For fishing subsurface, try our 7.5 foot Commando Tips.
