Fly Fishing

Saltwater or Fresh, Do you sling line?

For those who want to know more about it:
Fly Fishing is about throwing "lures" that look more like the real bugs (or baitfish) that a fish would look at. Rather than using the weight of the lure to pull the line out, you have to use the weight of the line to bring out your nearly weightless fly. Flies are made with fibers, feathers, fur and thread tied onto a hook. They sometimes look so much like the real thing, but often they're just big, fuzzy and ugly and catch loads of fish!
The best part of fly fishing is the fight, you can pull a fish in by gripping the line in your hands and fighting that fish's every move. (of course, you can use your reel, too)

To my northern friends, how was the striper season this fall? I heard there weren't many blitzes around LI this year.

Lisa, I'm so jealous, there are fishing courses and clubs all over the Americas, you can join a club and compete in national competitions! I think I should go back to school!

The fishing is heating up as the weather cools down here in SW Florida!

The best part of going to Penn State is that they offer fly fishing as a class!! Nothing better then getting up at 8 in the morning and fishing, and get credit for it!
