Fly fishing is a unique style of fishing compared to most other forms available. In the past, it was a technique that was used solely for freshwater fishing but that has changed and it is now possible it saltwater as well.
The casting style used to present a fly is much different from any other form of fishing.
A specialised rod that has great flexibility is required to produce the whipping action needed for this style of fishing. This rod is paired with another unique reel and fishing line.
Often a fly fisherman will begin to tie their own fly creations to use as bait or it is possible to buy them premade.
As mentioned above this is now a fishing technique that can be fished in both fresh and saltwater areas.
It is a popular technique when there is little or no wind so sheltered areas are ideal. Australia, Europe and The United States all have many fishermen using this style.
