So you decided to be a fisherman, or you are or want to be a fisher man, you must have some general knowledge about bait & tackle. I’m going to start off with the tackle part first because it is pointless to try and catch some fish with bait if you have nothing to snatch the fish up with.
I, of course, set the hook and the fight began. Now mind you, thirty minutes earlier I had caught and released two or three eighteen to twenty inch Rainbow trout. And that is exactly what this fish felt like for the first minute or two. Another nice trout. Then after five or six minutes of routine fighting, something happened.
Choosing fly boxes is quite crucial so be careful in doing so. It must have huge partitions wherein dry flies can be stored squashing their hackles. One or two boxes that have metal pins and foam on the inside layer are also needed. These can be used to store the wet flies, insect larvae, and streamers. It would also be helpful to have some small vials to store the dry flies after catching a fish.
In the front the vest should have at least two but preferably three pockets that can hold two fly boxes and a leader wallet. Small pockets in the chest area will get filled with the minutiae that make fly fishing so wonderful. The obligatory fleece patches are necessary to hold flies temporarily. One final thing that I find very handy is a rod holder that is a loop of fabric on the right lower hem of the vest and a Velcro strap on the left chest hem. When you are on the stream, you can put the butt of the rod in the loop and run the strap around the rod itself. Your rod sits pointing in the air, lifting your line out of the water and making tying knots so much easier.
5) Fish with other people. You will often learn new techniques, fish different spots, and generally learn from each other. Fishing with friends is also lots of fun too!
Used fly discount fishing gear will work for either dry fly fishing or nymph fly fishing. Essentially with dry fishing, the artificial fly is on top of the water when the fish bites. With nymph fishing the artificial eggs are made to resemble laid eggs that have come to the water surface to hatch into a fly. This type of fishing can be a little more challenging because the fisherman (woman) cannot see what is happening below the surface of the water.
When you get home, this can be quite a job, especially if the weather has not been good. Rain can mean that everything can get splattered or covered with mud and wet.
If any of the above pieces of gear aren’t a part of your trout fishing repertoire they should be added sooner, rather than later. Every one of these pieces of fishing gear will make anyone a much more efficient and effective trout angler. Fishing for trout, especially in small rivers and streams, will never be the same with the addition of this gear.
