  • River Runs Through It Fly Fishing
    493 words
    A River Runs Through It Fly fishing is not what this story is all about, although it might seem so at first. Neither is it about religion, even though the father's first line is: 'In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. ' Yes, these two things are themes that run through the story and add to its power. But there is so much more. It depicts a place of beauty, history, myth, and mystery, it is a triangle of earth in Montana where the writer grew up. And it captures...
  • Speed Of The Rod
    354 words
    The Physics of Fly-fishin " What does it take to launch an ultra-light fishing line over 200 feet? A little physics and a lot of feel for the fishing rod, that's what. The trick to doing good is to have the thinner, end of the line, land on the water first then the fly.

To most people the sound of a fish taking string is an annoying noise. To a fly fisherman, it is music. The sport of fly fishing has been around for many years, and is very relaxing. The fly rod use to be made of bamboo and sometimes it is still used. A rod has to bend and work equally well in any direction-up, down, sideways, across...
  • Easiest Cast On A Fly Line
    799 words
    There are six main elements of fly fishing; a fly rod (usually around 9 feet long), a fly reel (a round shaped real with a 1: 1 relative ratio), a fly line (around 90 feet long), fly lining backing (fills up the reel and is spare line in case the fish takes a long run), a tippet to tie to the front end of the fly line so it does not scare the fish (around 9 feet of clear line), and a few flies (lures made from winding furs, feathers, glitter and various other things around a hook).
