The technique that you use to fly fish is like a well designed dance routine. In Fly fishing, a fake fly, called a lure, is used to sail through the air on a special fly fishing pole and lightly dropped onto the surface of the water. You repeat this process regularly until a fish bites as the fly lands. This is a great technique for catching surface feeding fish.

This technique is used for top feeders, and is most efficient when used in fast moving water. Most fly fishermen wade into the stream and attempt this technique from there. In this instance, you will need supplies such as a fishing vest and waterproof waders. The only thing that you will need to learn is how to be skillful at casting. No worries.
