Fly fishing is one of the oldest fishing methods, which had its name due to the baits used. These baits imitate insects, the natural food of some fish, and are handcrafted (with hairs, feathers, plastic threads, and silk threads).
Nowadays, not only insect-eating species are caught. This is because the baits are produced in the most diverse forms (fish, crustaceans, frogs, etc.), increasing the options of this type of fishing, even used to catch sea fish.
But to practice this type of fishing, the equipment is all special and delicate, very different from those used in other types of fishing.
This is not a very difficult modality to learn, and also very fun. In addition, the equipment can be used for fishing for more than one type of fish, with some simple modifications to the material.
Fishing with fly bait can be practiced in small, large rivers, streams, ponds, lakes, dams, and sea. This gives many possibilities to you that want to start with this art. Everything will depend on what you want, so just practice and perfect the technique. In addition, people of any age and sex can practice this modality without any problem.
For fly fishing, equipment is one of the most important requirements. The main ones are the fishing rod, the reel, the backing, the line and of course the fly bait.
