    To me, I believe it to be art, in the technique you use. It's something fly fisherman learns as time goes on...

    Not everyone has the same technique, but when you watch them cast, it's amazing how graceful and accurate they can be!

    To start fly fishing you need a fly rod, a line and some artificial flies. The idea is to catch fish by getting them to bite on an imitation of a bug or bait fish on, or just below, the water. Flies are made using thread, wire, beads, feathers, yarn and hair, and are created to look like insects and bait fish at various stages of maturity to attract trout, salmon, pan fish and carp, as well as marine species such as tarpon, bone fish and striped bass.
