Fly Fishing Line Tips

To be a successful fly fisherman you need to use the right lines. Sometimes you will want to have the weight more towards the lead and sometimes having the weight more towards the middle of the line. Most beginners should use the middle of the line method because it makes it easier to roll and cast.

One type of line will float on the surface of the water and another type will sink under the water. The line sinking under the water is more difficult to cast and only used in deep water.

You should always keep your lines clean with regular cleaning. You can buy a cleaning kit especially made for cleaning your lines. To cast successfully your line needs to be dirt and film free.

Most fly fishermen use a clear line but you can also use a colored one. Using a colored one makes it easier to tell where it is. There are many different colors to choose from and it is up to you which color you prefer.
