Fly Fishing’s Black & White (The Basics)

These are very basic considerations for the beginner, but well worth doing (several times) to avoid bad habits and wasting your time: take classes on how to cast…take fly tying classes…take a guided trip or two…visit the shop when they are having special events and speakers…join fly fishing clubs…go on those club’s outings…watch other anglers on the river or lake and study their techniques…ask questions (hard for men to do).

Guided trips (I know they can be spendy) or fishing with others that invite you, is one of the best suggestions I can give. Keep an open mind and take advice from your guide/friends and you will learn more in that outing then in months by yourself.

Yes, you can read inspirational how to stuff like here at SwittersB & Fly Fishing, you can watch videos and inspiring movies and such, but that direct contact with experienced fly fishers will accelerate your progress.

Attending to the basics, the black and white, of the sport and not getting overloaded with all the minutiae too soon. Like any past time you will involve yourself to the degree of your given talents and aptitude. Enjoy it and master the basics first.

Then, also study this blog, others on my blogroll and add to the basics. You will soon realize there are different roads to the same destination….by that I mean you will be taught seemingly conflicting techniques. Sort through all this and build upon the new information. In time you will develop your own style.
