The definition of Fly Fishing: Catching fish with an artific

Fly fishing website, including casting techniques, tying flies, and catching fish with an artificial fly.

Fly fishing is one of the oldest forms of catching fish. Most anglers use this method when looking to catch trout or salmon, however, it can also be used to catch many other species of fish, including bass, pike, carp and grayling.

It is one of the hardest disciplines to master, with your casting techniques, your choice of lure and your retrieval of the lure ALL contributing to your chances of catching a fish.

The flies themselves are created by tying various materials to a hook. These materials can vary, but mostly include, feathers, fur, hair, as well as synthetic materials. Many Fly fishermen create their own flies adding to the attraction that this is fishing in its purest form.

The casting of the lure can be one of the most difficult parts of the discipline to learn. This is due to the fact that you are actually casting the line (as the lure usually has very little weight). This requires a tremendous amount of technique, as you are essentially casting more and more line with each casting motion.

Our website aims to cover all aspects of this discipline, and we hope to include tips and advice on casting, tying flies, where to fish, and what equipment to buy.

We look forward to your return. Thanks for dropping by.
