An angler who has mastered the secrets and techniques of fly fishing has still more secrets needed to uncover. Fly fishing is an art, more than just being a hobby for many, especially for those who loves tranquility; it suggests accuracy and at the same time, combined suggestions from anglers here and there. People who have been captivated by the hobby of fly fishing just can’t seem to get enough of the tricks and other ideas that are accessible for them. Fly fishing just doesn’t seem to stop surprising hobbyists.
Just before you go to where you would execute all your fly fishing routine and techniques, be sure that you are more than ready to face whatever it is that is going to come your way. The day is sunny but you will never know if it could change to cloudy and eventually rainy. Always be ready for anything. In this case, when packing, ensure all the things that you need and the ones that will come in handy just in case of emergencies.
These are the basics. And speaking of which, basic knowledge and the fundamental materials end up as the most important ones which you should always tow with you. It doesn’t matter whether you think you won’t be using it. It just “matters”. As for the “art” of capturing your target species, just apply what your instincts tell you. Most anglers would tend to become excited especially if it’s their first fly fishing experience. This is excusable. Even experts have made this common mistake, but, it happens. Try, with all your might, not to disturb the water as this will only scare away your precious targets.
At the end of the day, some anglers get satisfied with what they have captured. Snapshots of the different types of fish are their evidence for life. As for some, there are those that are left empty-handed. It’s sad and frustrating even; but it’s part of the fly fishing experience. Who said everything has to be perfect? Eventually, enjoying a catch and flashing the widest grin to the camera with a large fish dangling overhead could happen. It’s not impossible, it could happen to you next time.
