While fishing last Saturday with a few friends, I realized what it is about fly fishing that is so captivating to me. In my opinion, it's nothing like other types of fishing. There's more steps, more stuff, and there is more of a challenge to fly fishing.
When most people think of fly fishing, they think of grandpa out on the river waving his rod back and forth causing the line to unroll behind him, then back in front of him before it falls to the water. And that is about as far as it goes.
When I think about fly fishing, it's a whole other world out there..
I went fishing last Friday at one of my favorite little rivers. I hadn't had much luck yet this year but I'm still learning how to present different patterns for different times of year, and I'm not discouraged. Whether I catch a fish or not, I love being on the water.
I confirmed an assumption about fishing that has nothing to do with the bait, rod, or waders that you use. Success on the river often depends on who is there.
Trout season kicked off last Sunday, and boy was it good to be out in the water! I didn't catch anything, didn't even get a bite.. yet I still had a good time fishing.
My new waders work great (so far)! What a difference it makes to be able to walk right out in the middle of a river without the fear of getting soaked. Especially this time of year!
I ran into a little issue the other day while I was fishing that I thought I would share with you..
