Understanding Basics Of Fly Fishing

By David Versilles

Many people will no doubt run across friends that are crazy about fishing, and it is almost weird if you haven’t because of the prevalent of this hobby shared by many enthusiasts around the world. This is especially true if you happen to live in a region where there are abundant lakes and sea. Fly fishing is not much different from fishing, as it is just a variation of it.

If you think that fly fishing is difficult, than you are very wrong because just by understanding the difference between fly fishing and normal fishing, you are actually ready to hit the lakes and start catching a fish or two. This article will discuss the basics of this sport.

One of the very first thing you’ll need to understand is the reel and the rods used in these sort of fishing. The rods are generally taller and thinner and have a certain weight, which is different from your regular rods. So don’t be surprise to find that some of the fly fishing rods are really heavy, especially those that are use to go to the sea for saltwater fish.

The reel is also different from the normal reel and thus makes sure you ask the sales person about differences in reels before you attempt to buy any. Wrong equipments will mean a harder time to get any success.

Fishing lines found in fly fishing can also differ from your normal fishing line. Fly fishing lines are usually larger and more visible, which is a stark difference from your normal fishing lines which are usually invisible. When you are out buying your fly fishing line, you want to understand how the weight of these lines will affect your fishing, as different weights and lines are important in fly fishing.

Instead of using living lures, many fly fishing enthusiasts prefer to use artificial lures, and they are tied around the end of the tippet, which is located at the end of the fishing line. Artificial lures, especially where it resembles the insects that grow around the region where you are fishing tends to be more effective at luring fishes due to them being defenseless when they are out hunting for their food.
