101 Fly Fishing Tips for Beginners HTML version

Fly fishing is a very popular fishing sport that can be both relaxing and challenging at the
same time.
The following tips and tricks are ideal of beginners. When you’re just starting out learning
to fly fish you’ll want all the help and advice that you can get from the experts.
Tip #1: Practice your Casting
The experts say that the one thing that you need to do to develop a good casting technique
is to practice as often as you can. This will lead to a proficiency in casting that make all the
difference between being a successful fly fisher or a frustrated one.
Try practicing against a wall on the outside of your house. Just imagine that there is a clock
hanging on the wall that is at the same level as your shoulder. Place markers, such as black
electric tape, at the 11:00 and 1:00 clock positions. Practice casting against these markers
for a few minutes each day to improve your accuracy and style.
Tip #2: Rods
There are several things that you need to think about when choosing the right type of rod
for you. Every reel and rod has a certain function that you need to be aware of.
One of the first things that you need to consider is comfort. Is the rod that you're using
comfortable for you to hold? If you're shorter than about 5'5" you won't want to use a rod
that is seven feet. Choose a rod length that is easy for you to hold and cast for a few hours
at a time.
