Fishing is an art. And for some, it is a hobby. Alongside it also serves as a pass time for many. Today we are about to learn some point over fly fishing. Therefore without any further ado, let us get going with the topic-

Fishing Some Methods To Lay Your Eyes On-

There are two main methods of fly fishing. The first one, with a rod and reel, is the ” western fly fishing.”

This method is casting a very light “lure,” made with feathers, fur, or synthetics material, with a heavy line, which loads the rod. A leader of various lengths and strengths connects the fly to the mainline.

Therefore,this means a massive amount of set-ups if you want to cover all applications of that fly fishing. And master each type of cast too. Tons of books got written on the subject, but nothing will get you more experience than getting on the water. Almost every kind of fish (even carp) can get caught that way.

The other method is the “tenkara,” and it’s a more minimalistic fly fishing without a reel. The line is thinner, the rod longer (typically 10 to 13 feet). And although it’s at first time dedicated to fish small streams, it may catch big fish due to the extreme stealth of approach.

Now you can get more in-depth on fly fishing by knowing how to tie flies, and on the fish, you may target. From massive sea predators to small roach, on topwater, down and dirty, streamers, etc.

You can break fly fishing up a few different ways:

1. By the type of water, you are fishing e.g., salt or fresh, river or lake

2. From the kind of rod you use e.g., single-handed or double-handed

3. By the type of line, you are using e.g., floating or sinking

4. From the kind of fish you are fishing, e.g. trout, salmon, permit or even marlin (really!)

5. And, of course, by the kind of fly that you are using e.g., dry, wet, nymph, streamer, etc.

For example, you might say you were salmon fishing in Scotland, say, which would involve a specific set of equipment and techniques, or fishing for permit in Belize, which would include very different gear and techniques.

What stays the same is that you are using a rod to cast a line with an artificial fly to a fish.

Some Other Methods To Learn

There are four other methods of fly_fishing which are-

Casting – Its the process of casting an artificial fly to attract a fish and trap it into the rattrap.

Reach Casting- Its the casting method in which the fly is ‘cast’ in the flowing or moving water.

Spey Cast – Spey casting requires the use of a long rod, which gets operated by using two hands. Additionally, one uses this method generally to catch the salmon fishes

Trout Fly_fishing – In this type of fly_fishing, we can handle any kind of flies or insects to attract the fishes, whether it’s dry or not.
