Are you a beginner and planning to go for a good fishing this season then you should opt the right type of gear, follow the right techniques of fishing so that you don’t return home empty handed. It is important to know how to select and purchase the essential fly fishing equipment like fly rods, reels, line, waders and fishing vests. You should have an idea of the most common flies that are used for fishing including dry, nymph and streamers. After purchasing the right gear you need to understand some basic principles of fishing so that your day turns out to be eventful.

You should have an idea as what insects is the fish feeding on to decide upon the fly pattern that you should be using. You must know well where in the water the fish are feeding to accordingly cast and place your fly fishing gear at exact place. There is a lot of activity happening below the surface of water which is unknown to many of us. Fishes feed on insect larvae and nymphs and also small minnows, leeches and worms for food. You can even use hatch charts to know the exact insect and size that matches with your net. Remember whatever you catch in the net might differ from bank to mid stream and therefore try your best to match what is in the net to your fly selection.

After matching your fly with your net you need to know how to tie the basic fishing knots for effective fishing. It is important to lubricate your knot with saliva or water prior tightening it. This helps in reducing the friction and heat buildup when tightening it and also allows the knot to slip and seat properly. Seat your knot with continuous motion to check that it is properly seated. You can even check to see by pulling it on both ends. Trim the ends carefully close to the knot without damaging the line. You can use sharp nippers to trim it. Check the knot after trimming so that you don’t lose the big fish just because of bad knot. Fishing is both fun and entertaining if you know the right techniques and have the right gear.
