Now is the Time to Learn to Fly Fish
Now is the time to learn to fly fish, and sources of fly fishing instruction are everywhere. You are not just limited to fly fishing in the summer months. In New Mexico, for instance, there is good fly fishing for trout all year long.
If you happen to live in a state with limited fishing opportunities in the fall and winter, it’s the perfect time to learn how to cast a fly. All you need is a good open area. If you haven’t learned to tie flies yet, start now. It’s a really cool experience to catch fish on flies summer fly fishing Missoula you’ve tied yourself. In fact, most fly fishermen I know spend the winter months tying enough flies to get through the summer so they don’t lose any fishing time.
For fly fishing instruction, you could either take classes, lessons, or use the various online methods. Books alone usually don’t work well enough. It really helps to see someone do it. The online products that include both reading material and video lessons have proven the best for me and most other people I fish with.
Lessons are great, but if you don’t remember everything you’re taught, you’ll have to have more lessons to make up for what you forgot. With eBooks and video lessons, you can go over them as many times as you wish to make sure you get all the information.
In many of the southern states, there is great trout fishing during the winter. It will mainly be in low-lying river areas. Also, panfish are great fun with flies. They hit flies hard, and while it’s not trout fishing, it’s still a lot of fun.
