Salt Water Fly Fishing

By Lois Jones

The thrill and excitement that was the characteristic of freshwater bodies in days of yore has now extended to salt water fish. Since the past half century fly fishing has become somewhat of an elitist sport and it has spread through Europe and the Americas. Many of the sports men choose to wear their hip length waders and fish from near the river banks or the shores of the lakes while some prefer to go out in boats with their fly fishing equipment.

Relating to saltwater fishing the angler has two choices. One is to look for a place on an island or near a densely vegetated part of the sea shore or go out in a boat to a place he or she knows big game is lurking. Once i relates to salt water fly fishing one can be confident the prey they seek will be tremendous. And given that water covers over 75% of the world there is no dearth of saltwater fish to angle or the number of places to fish.

So far as salt water fishing is concerned, it is very important study and understand the effect the tides have on the fish. The temperature and the clarity of the water are affected by the tides. These are two of the important factors to be considered when fly fishing. Let us take one example. Fly fishing in an inland lagoon or a bay means the tides needs to be used to consideration, if the tide is draining from the lagoon or bay the larger fish will be feeding on the tiny fish that have been swept into the water body by the tide. Try your luck fishing away from the mouth of the creek, you can be pleasantly surprised.

A little information about geography will tell you that tides fall and rise once every 12 hours. Since salt water fly fishing is done in shallow waters (if you would like relatively smaller fish) you know that fishing during the times when the tides have ebbed. This is the time the fish will be feeding among the vegetation and the smaller fish that swim near the surface.

The majority of the salt water fisherman prefer to fly fish in the shallow waters near the shore, or from a boat a little way out in the ocean where bigger game offer more excitement. This is called ‘inshore fishing’. The game that can be pursued during ‘inshore fishing’ include striped bass, bluefish, flounder, channel bass, bonito and barracuda among many more.

One other kind of saltwater fly fishing is deep water fishing. It is an even more challenging form of fly fishing. Normally deep water fly fishing is pursued in waters that are deeper than 12 feet. Fly fishers normally fish in deep salt waters from boats than can range in length from 50 feet to 10 feet, it is fast gaining popularity among the fly fisher community worldwide.
