For fly fishers to be successful in fly fishing, they need to stop casting back and forth too many times before letting their fly land on the water. Some people that fish are under the impression that casting a number of times will increase the length of the line on their rod. All of this is all false information and only means you are wasting time just slinging your line around in the air. This is why it is so important for fly fishers to fish the correct way if there are going to be successful at catching anything.
Before fly fishers begin to fish in any body of water, they should always study the water before they cast their line. When they study the water, they should watch it and see the directions the water is flowing. Also, fly fishers should look at the water and determine where the fish are active. Once this is established, fishers should cast their line near the area where the fish are active. This more than likely will increase their chances of being successful at catching something. If fishers are casting their lines in areas where there are not any fish without studying their fishing area first, they are decreasing their chances of being successful.
Another way for fly fishers to increase their chances of being better fishers is to practice tying a tippet and changing out flies. The reason is because this will decrease their chances of spending time fumbling around with your line, rather than fishing. Fly fishers should take a variety of flies with them, but they should not take too many. A person with too many flies can create a lot of distractions because the fish will not take the bait if they are seeing to many different types of flies.
This can be very confusing to the fish, so it is best to narrow your flies down to a select few. If fly fishers limit the number of times they cast their lines, study the water pattern first, and limit their variety of flies, they will be more successful at fishing.
