Fly Fishing Lures

In the general sport of fishing, you use lures to catch your fish; however, when you are fly fishing, the word lure only marginally applies.

When you are fly fishing, you attempt to........ Read More

Fly Fishing Reels

Your fly fishing reel can be as important as your fly fishing rod. At one time, many people thought of the fly fishing reel as just storage for your line, but it has evolved into so much more.

The History Of Fly Fishing

No one really knows when fly fishing first began. It is believed that it existed long ago in ancient times. One of the earliest written references to fly fishing was made by Claudius Aelianus. In 200 AD he wrote of people that were fishing in a river with a hand made fly. He described how they attached red wool and feathers to a hook.

Beyond that, two different types of reels exist for the fly fisherman: the Spring and Pawl, and........ Read More
