Many people nowadays have taken to this due to the close to nature appeal and the challenges it offers. Fly  fishing  is also preferred as it is seen as a safer sport in comparison to hunting. Fly  fishing  is performed in lakes and rivers where one can simply sit by the river banks or head out a few hundred yards into the lake. Those who can afford it can venture out deep into the sea on a luxury yacht for a fly  fishing  session.

Once you’ve decided to hit the waters for some fly  fishing  sessions, there are some pre  fishing  procedures to be done. Primarily, there is the shelling out of money towards fly  fishing  tackle.

Look out for a rod that is usable in most conditions and sturdy enough as well.

The fly  fishing  reel and spool are the next most important of fly  fishing  tackle. A reel is used to bring in or dispense the line while the spool holds the line. Most regular fishermen will find the need to use multiple types of lines and hence it is best that one buys extra spools. Having at least two spools would be a good idea, if not for now, maybe later. The fly  fishing  line consists of two parts; the backing and the line itself. The backing is the first part which is used to game the fish. The fly lines vary and will depend on the kind of rod that one uses. A beginner would find that a light weight line would be easiest to use until they get sufficient practice. One can get the line fitted onto the reel during purchase. It requires a specific machine for this purpose, or a steady hand. There are many brands of line some for the most popular are Fenwick and streamside and Cortland. Most times the fisherman knows what he needs before long to have a successful day at the river.

It is transparent being made of a monofilament. The tippet will hold up the lure when the cast is thrown and hence the need for transparency. The tippet also has to be replaced every time a cast is thrown and hence it is best to buy a lot. For fly  fishing  flies, one can procure large packs of fly  fishing  flies at a regular  fishing  store whereas some prefer to produce their own fly  fishing  flies to specific patterns.
