Greetings,

I am planning to take up fly fishing and to start with I attended a 4 hour lesson today from a licensed Guide and Instructor Marc de Jong. I learned a lot in the fly world. We also spent some time in the water catching a few small fish in a stream running near my house.

Pics of the creek:





Bait that were under the rocks in the stream were freshwater shrimp and other small worms







We used a sinking fly and bounced it on the bottom similar to jigging.
Marc caught a small mouth bass and I caught one in the same size.
I also caught a small sunfish which you can see in the picture below :-)

Hello Maruthu

Am really excited that you have started flyfishing. Am sure more Indian will take to this fantastic artistic sport. Its gets even better once you start tying your own flies.

Have just completed a year of flyfishing and thanks to some friends out here have learnt a lot.

I have just ordered and received two CD's on flytying. Am also practising the double haul tehnique to cast more than 70 feet out.

Planning a trip this friday at 0500 local time just before high tide. will upload report and pictures. Mainly get small trevally

Carlton

Vincent, thanks for the comment. I will be back home in a while for those GTs on the FLY.

Bobby, It cost me US $ 129.00 for a 4 hour lesson.

Hello Vincent

Its both 50/50. Last friday was fishing on an incoming tide and suddenly say 4 or 5 trevall about a kilo chomping at some fish at the surface. they were around 30 feet from me. could not see them clearly but just their movement. Cast ahead of them. Three four big strips and wow, bang the olive clouser went. Took around 70 feet of my fly line but was able to land him after 3 or 4 minutes. Am usind an intermediate line that tends to sink slowly. Cast again as the fish were still feeding and immediatelay started stripping my line. Could see the fly on the surface . After two strips another trevally, same size took the fly. Completely visual. You need Poloroid Glasses. One to see better into the water and secondly and most imporatntly to save your eyes in case the fly hits your face when casting.
Got the fish out. Cast again and allowed the clouser to sink as the fish were not on the surface. Bang went the fly and the third trevally was on. Lost it while fighting the fish. Was not properly hooked.

It all depends at what depth your fishing. Most of the time I allow the fly to sink and then start stripping. Do not see the fish but can feel them biting with my stripping Hand.

You need some basic help at the start with the whole setup as also the casting technique. Its best if u see someone doing it. Its much easier.
I have got a few DVDs. send me your address and I will send a copy thru someone going to cochin. Please give TEL numbers too. Please share with as much fishing friends as you can. Will also send you some flies that I make. Are you fishing saltwater or freshwater. For saltwater you need to cast out 70 feet or more. After a year have just started casting between 60 feet and 70 feet. Have a friend to helped me initially who can cast allmost all of 90 feet all the time. The big fish season out here is October till March. We are planning a three day trip early October. Big Bream as also Permit Sharry and Bluefish.

My sister is in allepey and am there almost once a year. will keep in touch with you when am there next ...maybe december and spend a day with you to show you some casting.

Have some probelms with my camera and did not get a chance to take a picture. Another friend took a phone picture. As soon as I get same will upload . Indian Angler has some fly fishing equipment. For the sea you need an 8 weight or higher. For rivers and streams you would need a 5 or 6 weight.

Once you start you can get completely hooked. Am fly fishing twice a week. Its clean as you dont need to touch any raw bait. You can keep changing patterns colours and flies depending on the fish you are after.
Here its all sa;twater flyfishing.

Carlton
