What is Fly Fishing?

There is nothing more commonly uttered by people who know
nothing about fishing than: What is Fly Fishing? In most cases, these beginners
think that fly-fishing is some strange special way of fishing where we sit down
and try and catch flies with our rods rather than fish. But what most of these
people don’t realize is that, fly-fishing is actually the most common form of
fishing that we see represented in media and movies. This is because it is much
easier to have someone cast a line with a fake fly as bait than it is with live
bait of any kind.
 
And that’s just what fly-fishing really is, you are using
fake bait, made of plastic or metal or anything than carries enough weight to
be able to cast the line properly into the water. Some people might just call
that fishing, but it’s a very unique style that not everyone does. Some people
prefer the use of worms or live bait of some kind, and others don’t use rods
for fishing at all.
So if all that is changing is the use of fake bait instead
of live bait, how does fly-fishing defer from fishing with live bait? Well that
all comes down to the weights of a rod, the line, and the bait. Generally fake
bait on a lure will weigh less than if you are using live stuff, and that means
you have to really learn how to cast your line properly with less weight.
And if you think that is easy, try throwing a piece of paper
toward someone without making any folds in the paper and see how far it gets or
if it goes where you want it to. That’s the kind of challenge you face with fly
fishing, and why many people prefer it. It’s also why you usually see people
who fly fish will cast their line multiple times, or continually recast their
line.
Either way it is certainly a fun method of fishing and
everyone should at least try the casting once. The only other thing you have to
decide is what kind of fly you want on the end of your line, and that’s a whole
other matter to handle.
