This article aims to be a very basic guide and will take you through some of the history of flyfishing as well as a basic overview of how to fly fish.
The earliest writings of flyfishing that have been found so far are dated around the second century AD. After that there is a gap of roughly thirteen hundred years as the next fishing writings that we know about were published in the late 1400s. After those writings were published, the sport lost notoriety until the nineteenth century when the British elite fell in love with the sport. In the late 1800s, fly fishing became very popular in Britain and it quickly became the sport of choice among the British upper class and well-to-do society members. It wasn\'t long before very elite fly- fishing clubs were formed. These clubs were small and honored the traditional methods of the sport. They were appalled by the American practices of fly fishing which involved all members of society no matter what their social ranking and also involved the attempt to improve upon the traditional methods of the sport. The American fly fishers are famous for constructing new rods, new line and new reels. http://bellybootshop.de/
