Fly Fishing for Kids: Reading the Water

 We talked about drag on the water and spooking fish when casting but how do you find the fish in the first place?

Fly Fishing for Kids: Casting

 The biggest difference between spin fishing and fly fishing is the way you cast. With spin fishing, you put your lure in the water and wait. With Fly Fishing, you do an artistic cast out over the water (over and over) until, hopefully, a fish strikes.  Fly casting takes a lot of practice but anyone… Continue reading Fly Fishing for Kids: Casting

Fly Fishing the Elk River

In between camping, golfing and, of course, eating, Nick and I found time to learn how to fly fish on the Elk River in Monterville, Randolph County, WV. Admittedly, I do not golf.
