Combine the serenity of being outdoors and the satisfaction of conquering new skills, and you have fly fishing. Enthusiasts describe it as exciting, satisfying, rewarding, and challenging.
Artificial bait (that mimics common bugs or bait fish) is used to fly fish. Along with using artificial bait, fly fishing differs from regular fishing in the reel and rods used. Spin fishing rods have reels and are heavier. Fly fishing rods are long, loose, and lighter in weight. Spin fishing is practiced in still waters from a boat, aiming to catch various types of fish. Fly fishing is done in moving waters such as rivers and streams while focusing on catching fish like trout and bass. Fly fishers can cast from the edges of moving waters or enjoy getting into the water using waders and casting from there.
