    Fly fishing is a method of fishing that uses an artificial fly to catch fish in both freshwater and saltwater bodies of water. The techniques used for fly fishing vary based on the type of water body (lakes, river, pond, ocean, etc.) that is being fished in. The primary difference between fly fishing and other fishing techniques is the weight of the fishing line is what carries the fly during the cast, unlike other techniques that use a weight on the end of the fishing line. The artificial flies used will resemble insects, bait fish, crustaceans and other styles that can attract a fish.
