Fly fishing is a method of angling that uses an artificial fly to catch the fish. A fly rod, reel, and specialized weighted line are used to cast the fly. Hand tied flies that look like baitfish, food organisms or lures are used to provoke the fish to bite at the fly. Fly fishing can be done in both fresh or salt water.
