Fishing Tips: Beginners Guide to Fly Fishing

Check out this video from Bow River Troutfitters for some of the most important fly fishing tips for beginner anglers. Whether you’re a beginner or not, we could all use a reminder.

  1. Don’t rig up your rod until you’ve approached the water.
  2. Wearing waders doesn’t mean that you have to stand in the water. Fish the bank before getting anywhere near the water.
  3. Learn to handle excess line properly.
  4. Set your drag so that the line doesn’t create a “bird’s nest” when you’re pulling line off the reel.
  5. Keep your hooks sharp.
  6. Don’t false cast too much.
  7. When making big casts, have excess line off the reel in order to shoot the line further with fewer false casts.
