When beginning fly fishing be sure to take the time to do your research so you will know what the right equipment is to buy as well as any other accessories. One thing many beginners don’t take into consideration is the purchase of a balanced fly fishing outfit that will help them catch the type and size of fish that they want.
The rod and fishing line need to be the same weight, the weight and length of the fly rod can be found on the rod just above the handle. The line weight can be found on the side of the fly line box.
Sizes of fly rods and fly lines vary depending on the size and type of fish they will be fishing for. Determining the size and type of flies is important as well because they have to match the different type of waters you will be fishing.
Purchasing the wrong equipment for the type of waters and fish they will be after can be very expensive if the beginner fly fisherman doesn’t do his homework and get a good understanding of this sport. Ask around and try to find others who are or have been involved with fly fishing for quite a while. Due to the cost of this equipment it is a good idea to buy good reliable equipment.
If you go with cheaper fishing gear it will break easily and will cost you more in the long run if you are always replacing it due to it being easily damaged. Visiting a couple of sporting goods stores is also a good idea. Look around while visiting them to get a good idea of what type of equipment is out there for specific waters and fish to fish for. If done right this can be an enjoyable sport.
