There seems to be no clear reason to undertake the generally more difficult path of fly fishing as opposed to another form of fishing. The general idea, of course, remains the same – the aim being to catch fish. Fly fishing, besides using a rod, reel and line, also shares many wonderful attributes (some indirectly) with other forms of fishing; for example, the scenic and often breathtaking places it takes you and meeting kind and generous people – many of whom are similarly obsessed – along the way. Simply put, in today’s fast-paced society, fly fishing – like other forms of fishing – offers a hard-to-find sense of tranquillity. However, it’s the way in which it’s done which makes fly fishing very different from conventional methods.
