In many ways it is very Utah_Fly_Fishing_3similar to all fishing it has the same basic premise of finding a likely natural food substance for fish tract to their environment where they have established regular feeding cycles and incise them with a quick and seemly harmless meal. However fly fishing is a style that varies significantly from deep sea or ice fishing it is built upon finesse.

My personal experience with the sport has left me intrigued by its attention to detail.  Fly fishing is the most tactical of all sports.  There is an immense amount of factors that go into every trip and every cast ranging anywhere from the lights angle fly_fishing_minnesota_river-704x400reflecting off the pool of water to the ounces of weight that is subjectively casted up or down wind. This intrigued has led me to establish some personal goals for this upcoming spring summer and fall fishing seasons.

  1. Very cool that you fly fish. I enjoy fishing, ice fishing to be exact, and would like to try fly fishing. I love watching the clips on TV of people standing in a remote creek in Alaska darting that little lure on and off the water. I fear once I start, I will become addicted and will have found a new hobby to pursue! What do you usually catch on your fly rig? Do you tie your own flies? I think this is the part that would consume my life if I were to take up fly fishing. Seeing those little lures come to life is absolutely amazing. Its incredible how much color and detail can be packed into such a small lure!
