Fly Fishing’s Red Hot Fly Patterns

Ok, a bit of a teaser...sorry.

For the beginner: I’ve posted my Top 10 list of fly patterns on this blog, as most bloggers eventually do. There are plenty of other’s Top 10’s posted on line as well. Check them all out. See the commonality regarding the top patterns and keep it simple. That will get you by while you decide if you like fly fishing and/or fly tying. Keep it simple for quite some time, before your start breaking the sport down into the ever finer details, that can obscure sound, simple basics after awhile. Oh, and part of the fun is those Top 10 lists change over time…season to season. You will arrive at your own list, but start with the tried and true for  awhile.


Fly Fishing Preparation Now! Pregatiri

Now is the time for trout/grayling fly fishers to move from tying and imagining to getting the gear ready too. Some are lucky to have year ’round fisheries. Others have the season openers looming. Here at Viata Si Pescuit the gear has been checked and prepared (pregatiri) and the basic flies are ready. Anticipation and planning.


Fly Fishing: Keepsakes & Quirks

Fly fishers do tend to give the impression of being gear driven. Perhaps it is the marketing assault of the new and improved and flashy that adds to this image. Some probably are still using their Eagle Claw rod and Medalist reel. But, I bet not many. But, I think there is another object or two that fly fishers carry that the marketing obsessives can’t touch…that certain little something that only matters to you in some sentimental, quirky, superstitious way.

There is another part of fly fishing that I find more fun, even child like. How many fly fishers carry some token of faith, superstition, love, nostalgia, charms, some remembrance of others, better times? Keepsakes, baubles, or some object that perpetuates the Good JuJu of mind, soul and good fishing & good times…..

Some could be that favorite object that is more functional (forceps, nippers, bandana, pack, lighter, pocket knife, cigar cutter) or earthy (a good luck pebble or small stone) or a gift that may or may not be too special to suffer the wear and tear of the elements and you. 

As the Ad says..’what’s in your wallet?’ What’s in your pack, wader’s pocket, or box that provides the mental, spiritual or nostalgic lift of good times past that you want to carry forward?
