What, Where and Why? Fly Fishing. That wonderful great adventures sport of catching fish in the rivers, streams, lakes and oceans of the great outdoors. In North America fishing anglers are thought to be the first to have used artificial flies for bass. Developed after fly patterns for trout and salmon fishing, patterns were adapted into specific flies for brass. Anglers fishing for brass developed the popper fly, which is still used today. Many early anglers developed new fly patterns and wrote about the sport, increasing the popularity of fly fishing in the United States as a whole. Fly Fishing peaked in the 1920’s in the Northeast and Midwestern United States.


   How? Using Fly tackle.  Fly Lines were made of silk or horse hair. They were light enough to use with a long fly fishing rod allowing the wind to do most of the work. With the introduction of new woods such as green heart and bamboo, it was possible to cast files into the wind on silk lines.


   American rod builders developed techniques for making bamboo rods. Thin stripes were cut and glued together to make a light, strong rod with a solid core, that was better than anything that proceeded them. In the 1950’s the development of fiberglass rods, synthetic fly lines and mono filament leaders revived the popularity of fly fishing in the United States. Fly Rods are available from Hurricane Red bone, Cortland, Cahill, and more. Combos are available from Okuma, Super Fly, Crystal River and more.


   Fly Reels from the mechanically simple, a storage place for your fly line and backing to the more advance models of today. In order to tire the fish, anglers simply applied hand pressure to the rim of the spool, called palming the rim. Many modern reels still use this design with a clicking mechanism which makes both a noise and provides light spool braking to prevent overruns. Today fly reels are available in many different brands from Crystal River, Cortland, Scientific Angler, Okuma and Super Fly just to mention a few. Saltwater fly fishing is done with heavier tackle, both to handle the larger, more powerful fish and to cast larger heavier flies. Wet flies that look like bait fish, crabs, or poppers are used. Species caught include bone fish, red fish or red drum, tuna, striped brass, salmon and marlin. Offshore species are usually attracted to the boat by chumming with small bait fish and trolling back and forth in a large area.


Fishing Waders used to wade out into the water to gain distance from the shore. Full length, chest-high fishing waders are the most popular. They provide improved footing, protection for feet and legs from sharp bottom objects and sting/biting fish and crustaceans and protection from the cold temperatures. Some fishermen prefer boot footed to stocking footed models, boot footed waders eliminates the sand and rocks from getting into the wading boots. In areas where fishing from slippery rocks, or mossy and slimy rock jetties, cleated boots with or without felt soles are used to improve footing and enhance safety.
