Fly Fishing 101: How To Rig Your Flies

When getting started in any new hobby or sport, there are basics that everyone needs to know. In this week's video, we go over how to rig your flies in the 3 most common setups. This isn't an end all be all comprehensive list, in fact I plan to revisit this video to talk about some of my favorite alternatives. This is just a guide to get new anglers exploring the different possibilities on how to set up their flies and hit the water with the confidence they need to catch fish. |In this video, I cover a traditional nymph rig, the dry dropper rig and things to look out for when fishing just a dry fly. With these three different styles of rigs, you can begin to explore what style works best for you and start tweaking your technique to produce the results you're looking for. 

Choosing your first fly rod

Have you walked into a fly shop and been overwhelmed at all the different options in fly rods they have available? Or perhaps you life so far away from your "local" fly shop that making a trip down there is an all day excursion. Well I'm going to help you with that. In this video, I am going to cover what you need to know about choosing your first fly rod. Going over 3 common weight categories most fresh water anglers will own at some point in their fly fishing career, I talk about the basics of the capabilities of each rod and what fishing styles those rods provide. Although this video isn't an end all be all video for the buying process, I feel as though its a good starting point in helping you make the decision of which fly rod to begin with.
