Useful Information For A Fly Fishing Beginner

Many people who are interested in water activities, especially a fly fishing beginner, are sometimes discouraged once they find out how expensive the sport actually is. After lessons, gear, transportation, and other expenses, a fun activity like this might not sound like a cheap one.However, there really is no reason to be discouraged. There are a few inexpensive measures that can be taken to get out on the water and start catching fish in no time.Initially, a fly fishing beginner may want to consider reading a book about the sport. Currently one can find an easy to understand guide about fly fishing for the beginner, such as L.L. Bean’s “Fly-Fishing Handbook” written by Dave Whitlock. Another popular choice is the “Trout Fisherman’s Bible” by Dan Holland. These books may be available at your local bookstore, and there is no better way to get a feel for the sport than picking up a nice piece of literature. As far as gear is concerned, L.L. Bean has an Angler Fly Rod Outfit available for purchase and it costs roughly 75 dollars. Wal-mart sells a complete rod and reel setup from Scientific Angler for about 75 dollars, and for 150 dollars one can find a Genesis outfit at Cabela’s which includes a fly box with sufficient tackle, a chest pack, and accessories such as forceps, nippers, weights, leaders, a fly floatant and strike indicators. If you are new to fly fishing and you want to get a feel for it initially, then it is probably better to start out small instead of running out and buying all the best gear. Shop around, check out some books for beginners, and decide whether or not you want to venture into the world of fly fishing.
