Want to start out strong and fruitful in fly fishing? Maybe you’ve already started but haven’t caught a thing? If you already have, perhaps you want to improve your game and get to catch the bigger ones this time? Do you feel as if your angling skills for fly fishing aren’t that sharp? Maybe this will help!THE TRICK TO FLY FISHING
As you may or may not know, fly fishing is not your usual “drop your bait and catch those fish” type of angling. For beginners not used to casting a “fly” or the near-weightless lures for this kind of fishing, it’s difficult to reach a few meters in front of you! First, here are things to keep in mind when you’re fly fishing:
• Lures/bait (fly) are different; they are very light and sensitive
• Lines used are unique, “weighted” lines to help in casting
• Reels and reeling in requires technique different from regular fishing
• Choice of cast, type of fly, and method of reeling are all the main factorsTIPS AND TRICKS Shooting and Casting
Sure it’s cool to watch an experienced fly fisher in action – the fluid motion, the efficient throw, the perfect landing – it’s a sight to behold!
- Learning how to shoot the line well is a great trick to reach difficult long-distance hiding places for fish. Master this first trick to reach farther and land your fly right under the giant fish’s habitat.Dressing your Fly
Customized weightless lures known as a “fly” come in many forms and sizes. Picking the right one that matches the insects around the area where you fish will be your best bet in catching mature fish that are smart enough not to go for the poorly chosen bait.
- “Dressing your fly” involves applying a solution that will keep the fly afloat by repelling water absorption – a floating fly is called a “dry fly” and stays on the water’s surface, resembling a fully grown insect that bigger fish prefer over a “wet fly” that used underwater.Luring in the fish
Once your line and bait are out there, as we said before, reeling is different and needs technique. Unlike other kinds of fishing that only require you to wait for fish to bite, you also need to move your fly around in the water to make it look natural!
- Move your fly like an insect does to make it appear as natural as possible.Source:https://www.takemefishing.org/fly-fishing/fly-fishing-basics/http://thatfishing.com/fly-fishing-tips/http://howtoflyfish.orvis.com/how-to-articles/trout-fishing-articles/
