Below is a 5 step guide to catching fish without a boat…
Step 1 – Pick a lake, pond, stream, river, bath tub, neighbors pool, neighbors aquarium… anything that may contain fish.
Step 2 – Get a map of selected location… Google Earth is your friend! Also try Fly Fish Map and Bing Maps for the birds eye view… there is no shortage of online and printed maps out there. Finding the service or source that works best for you, well, that’s up to you.
Step 3 – Pack you gear. The Necessities; Rod, Reel, Line, Flies, YOU and a great sense of adventure. (peanut butter sandwiches and a beer)
Step 4 – Hike, bike, drive, swim, fly, surf, sky dive, rent a submarine (technically not a boat – since it sinks… plus it would be damn hard to fly fish from) to get to selected location. Dont be afraid to go off trail here… when I come to a fork in the trail FlyLines always goes left, but left aint always right.
Step 5 – Catch Fish, have fun, catch fish, have fun, catch fish… Not necessarily in that order
Step 5.1 – Return to your car, truck, home, cave, dog house, RV, trailer in the woods… your humble abode without any fishes, because Catch and Release is more than a bad movie with Jennifer Garner and a mild Fly Fishing undertone.
Step 6 – OK, I know I said 5 but then check out Diablo Paddlesports because Step 4 is a giant pain in the bass!
Thanks for playing along, now lets go Fly Fishing!
