Fly Fishing The Sport For Any Time Of Year

Aug 18, 2007
Fly fishing is one of those sports adds a little extra challenge to the fun of the sport. This is an ancient fishing method that basically uses what looks like a natural insect to lure the fish to bite. Granted the equipment has changed drastically from what was used in ancient days, today there is equipment designed especially for fly-fishing.

Generally an artificial fly is used to sit on the top of the water waiting for the bite. There are several different designs, sizes and shapes of artificial flies. They are designed to look realistic and can fool most people. Some will use artificial grasshoppers, dragonflies, marfly and/or stonefly. Most fly fisher connoisseurs will carry a variety of disguises to try out while fly-fishing. Some fishermen choose to use what resembles a nymph or eggs that rise to the surface to hatch in order to get the bite. Generally the artificial looking eggs sit just below the surface of the water. Many claim that the nymph fishing is more productive than on top of the water, but certainly is more of a challenge.

Fly-fishing can be used in saltwater or freshwater. In fresh water the hopeful catch consists of a variety of fish, but mainly trout or trout. In saltwater there are many other types of marine life that may be the target such as salmon. Unfortunately with fly-fishing it is impossible to control what may bite. Many fishermen have found themselves with a little surprise as they reel in dinner. In some cases they will wind up with a chub or beam. Just like any other sport sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you don't.

There are yearly competitions held for fly-fishing all over the world. It has become a very popular sport and many are very serious about their competitions. There are tons of different insects to choose from and many fishermen have found their calling with a particular brand or style. These competitions typically net a decent payout and all the bragging rights you can stand.

Fly-fishing is a great sport for the entire family Many campers, families and children love to wait patiently for the fish to bite. Some enjoy it more because they can actually see what is going on. Since the artificial fly is on top of the water you can watch as it bobs. This wholesome sport is relaxing, challenging and best of all some good eating for the family. Fly-fishing can take place year round and just about anywhere in the world. It is not a sport that is limited to season or geographical water.
