Fly Fishing 101: The Information You Need to Get Started
Fly-fishing is the art of fishing that involves light tackle, called “flies”, a thick, specialized line, and a specifically designed rod and reel. The basic goal of fly-fishing is to attract fish that are feeding on small bait at or near the top of the water.
While most people hear the words “fly-fishing” and automatically think of trout streams coming down from the Rocky Mountains, the technique can be used in nearly every location, including lakes and saltwater flats.
Anglers have used fly-fishing to catch salmon, pan fish, bass, musky, carp, tarpon, bonefish, redfish, striped bass, and more, so no matter where you live, you can enjoy this amazing sport.
