Fly Fishing - Respect

Roger Flavan

Fly Fishing Respect-Respect the time it takes to learn about fishing by way of the fly. Fly fishing is as much an art as it is a hobby. Take the time to teach a youngster to fly fish the right way. Donít be impatient as many teachers become, give him, or her the time they need to learn the sport. Remember you were once in the pupilís position and itís obviously something you stuck with and enjoy to this day. Put in the same effort your teachers did for you and maybe someday the teacher will become the student of the pupil. I know itís happened more than once in my particular situation. Respect the sport of fly fishing. Remember you represent your hobby anytime youíre casting flys. What you do reflects on all others that come after you. Always ask permission before fishing on private property and leave it in the same condition as you arrived. If you see pieces of litter on the bank grab it and take it with you. All it takes is one bad apple to ruin the fishing area for everyone that comes after them for a number of years. Always respect the ownership rights regardless if posted, or not ask permission. Respect the room of other fly fisherman. When you approach someone fly fishing a pool they have the rights to that pool and itís in bad taste to crowd said fishermen. Move up, or down stream and within no time they will move on leaving the pool to you. Avoid pools where itís obvious a fellow fishermen is just resting the water, or changing flys. Remember the feeling you had the last time your fly stream was invaded by others, or even you favorite hunting ridge. Respect the fish on. When fly fishing and someone else hooks a fish let the person with the fish on have the right of way. Your fishing should cease until the fellow fly fishermen has the fish ashore. Chances are nothing was going to bite then anyway with all of the commotion of the hooked fish. Respect your catch. Only take home with you what you sure youíll use. If you are having an exceptional day make sure to leave some for the others to catch later. Move on to another pool to cast your flys. Probably the reason you are fly fishing is for the thrill of the catch everything after the catch is often the work part of it. Thereís a reason they call it Catch and Release and guess what, chances are theyíll be there next time. Respect the Area and those around. Try to approach your fly fishing hole as quietly as possible not just for the fishing sake, but for those of your fellow anglers. I canít say it enough, but leave the area exactly as you entered it. If you show respect in every aspect of your fly fishing it will only teach others that same respect.
