Some Guidelines For A Better Fly Fishing Experience

Aug 25, 2008
There are few other forms of fishing that require as much skill as fly fishing does. Fly fishing demands much patience and determination in the process, as well as a keen sense of sight. The process isn't completely hopeless for beginners, as there are some ways to get a jumpstart in this fun spin on fishing.

Being quiet is always a virtue for a fisherman- but especially so for the average fly fisherman. Fly fishing is much more dependent upon silence since the fisherman is actually in the water- which will easily spook fish should be make too many movements or sounds. Keep the radio at home, and reconsider bringing any pets along if you wish to have a good overall catch.

Few can withstand the annoyances of a fly or gnat while trying to fish. If you are in a particularly infested area, try an extra dose of insect repellant to keep distractions to a minimum. Also consider wearing clothing that isn't too "loud" or dark- such as black or yellow. Sticking to cool colors has shown to improve the ratio in which one is annoyed with flying pests.

If you're having trouble seeing into the water because of the glare of the sun, consider buying a pair of polarized sunglasses. Such sunglasses will take the glare off the waters due to their design, giving the fisherman a much better vision in which to catch fish with. They may be expensive, but they are vital to days when the sun is unforgiving.

Knowing the best bait for the job is the next piece of advice in getting the most out of a fly fishing trip. Experiment with different types of bait every half an hour or so, and see which are more likely to catch fish than others. If you need help selecting types of bait for the fish you'd like to catch, most live bait operations give free advice for beginning anglers.

Being safe in the act of fishing is one of the major concerns fly fisherman have. Because the bed of moving waters is usually covered in slimy residue, slipping on rocks and falling down is a common occurrence. Obtain boots that have extra texture to them for gripping rocks with more success, and also get to know the surrounding area by scouting it out before fishing in it.
