On Saturday there were a lot of spectators, they approached and asked: “Well, like, bite?”, and we were told that the fish we catch. The people with wondering eyes looked at us, said one of the participants.

As noted by a participant from the city of Kirov Maxim Kovyazin, fly fishing is good in that with one rod, you can catch any fish. “Fishing I got carried away with seven years, fly fishing have been doing for three years. It blends hobby into a profession. When you catch a fish on the fly, all happening before your eyes. The cord is in hand,sensations feel much more in comparison with fishing rod or spinning,” said Maxim.

Experienced fishermen said that if not mastered the technique of casting, then fish on the fly almost impossible to catch. To learn fly fishing is harder than spinning. Also, all the fly fishermen make their own flies, since their sale is almost there.
