Still Enjoy Fly Fishing During Winter

(No Ratings Yet)

The cold season is fast approaching and for most of the anglers, cold season means winter, and winter isn’t the best or ideal time to continue on with this great hobby – fly fishing. But there are still those anglers with brave hearts whom we see by the river banks or in the chilly waters that still pursue the spirit of fishing no matter how cold the winter season is.

These anglers are most likely the ones that are “addicted” to fishing which is why whether it be a cold or hot season, fishing is not a problem at all. If you are the type that is still yet to experience having a good catch by fly fishing, there are some things you need to know. If you would like to continue fishing during the winter season, might as well switch from your stylish and expensive hook to a cheaper one.

The cold weather causes the water to chill and when it does, your hook can easily crack because of the temperature. And if you are really serious about doing winter fly fishing, make sure that you bring along a spare rod. You never know how long your current rod could stand out the ice cold temperature of winter.

When you have rods and you are out in the cold winds, remember to keep the reels of both rods dry. The spare rod, you can keep in a cool, dry place where it won’t get wet and freeze. While the rod you are using, make sure that the reel is also dry. You really don’t want to get stuck when reeling in a catch, do you?

These things are simple but it will make a difference on how you can go fishing without any issues during the cold season. And oh, remember to protect yourself as well from the dropping temperature.
