Congratulations to Darcie of Darcizzle Offshore …. She was chosen as the winner this week for the best Fly Fishing photo submitted.
Fly Fishing is definitely an art form! Darcie shows control and grace as she casts.
Unlike other casting methods, fly fishing can be thought of as a method of casting line rather than lure. Non-flyfishing methods rely on a lure’s weight to pull line from the reel during the forward motion of a cast. By design, a fly is too light to be cast, and thus simply follows the unfurling of a properly cast fly line, which is heavier and tapered and therefore more castable than lines used in other types of fishing.
