How To Turn Your Bou...
Boots and fly fishing equipment
Oftentimes, you might travel a fair distance to go fly fishing. The last thing you would want is to forget curcial items for your fly fishing experience.
Some of the most important items to bring along with you on your fly fishing trip are:
Fly Rod. This is the part you hold onto while you cast and fish. This rod is possibly the number one thing to remember for fly fishing.
Fly Reel. The reel is that spinning circle that will bring your fish back to you.
Fly Line and Backing. The fly line is the thin string-like material that you see soaring through the air.
Leader and Tippet. This is the part that connects the end of fly line to the fly.
Files. This can include dry flies, nymphs, and streamers.
Wading Boots. These will help you trudge through the water without damp clothing.
Rain Jacket. This is another protective measure for your clothing.
With this list of items, you will be well prepared to go out on your fly fishing adventure. Other things to remember are just more typical gear for outside activity. This includes sunscreen, sunglasses, and bug spray.
Reading the Water:
Reading the water is a term that is used when a fisherman is looking for certain patterns and pockets in the water where the fish like to hang out. To catch more fish, you need to be able to find the fish.
When you are reading the water, make sure not to get too close to the areas you’re checking out. Standing to close or splashing around can scare the fish away.
Look for the three things fish want:
Cover. This is any place where they are safe from other predators, such as weed beds, fallen trees, vegetation, and rocks. Basically, if there is any spot that looks like a good hiding spot for a fish, that’s where you’ll find much fish.
Food. Anywhere along the water with bait or insects. Fish will often move towards where there is food. Rather than casting your line where there isn’t any other food for them, you will find more luck mixing your bait in with other food.
Margins. The edges between deep and shallow water. Make sure you know what the depth of the water is. Fish tend to hang out in the space between sections.
These are the places that fish tend to hang around. These are all guided around things they desire. Although you may not clearly see the fish, these places are likely to have a lot of fish.
Reading the water is a great skill to have for any fisherman. Once you are able to read the water, you can make accurate predictions of where the fish are rather than playing a guessing game.
