Being a Branson Missouri Fly Fishing Guide, John is dedicated to instruct you to the Joy of catching fish on a fly rod, the art of actually fooling the fish into thinking they are eating, a sometimes minute, insect and the art of presenting that fly to them in a natural realistic way.
With good instructions Fly Fishing is not hard at all, actually a lot of times it is much easier for a angler with absolutely no experience Fly Fishing to catch more fish on a fly rod than a spinning rod!
With most types of fishing you use the weight of the lure or a sinker to cast out, when you fly fish the lure or fly has no weight to it so the weight of the fly line carries the fly to the target or spot you want to fish. Therefore typically a fly rod is longer to cast the heavier fly line. The fly line is much bigger than conventional line, this bigger heavier and sometimes weighted line is designed to propel the fly to the fish.
The bigger and heavier the fly is the bigger and stiffer the fly rod and line needs to be to effectively propel your fly any distance.
In the Lake Taneycomo area of Branson, for fly fishing, we use 3 wt to 5 wt fly rods that are 7.5 ft to 9 ft long, day in and day out. In the fall, when the big boy's show up, we will step up to 6 wt to 8 or even 9 wt fly rods, depending on the Table Rock Lake generation schedule.
