An easy explanation is provided for those unfamiliar with fly fishing. Fishing with a fly is known as "fly fishing." Sure, any dunce can figure that out, but the real kicker is that the line, not the fly or lure at the end of it, provides the thrust that propels your offering out into the distance where fish can find it.
Because of this difference, we may now catch fish with lighter bait and, in some cases, a more refined presentation. Fly fishing was once necessary to catch fish, but that was before the advent of contemporary bearings and finely built spin and bait casting reels.
Similar to letterpress printing and carburetors, fly fishing has become a relic of the past. There is, however, a mystic art to fly fishing, just as there is to carburetors and letterpresses. The shape the line makes as it travels through the air during a fly cast is known as a loop. There is something exquisite about a perfectly constructed loop. Its two axes move in sync through the air.
