101 Fly Fishing Tips for Beginners: Tip #21: More Tips from the Experts and Tip #22 Leaders. The more tips and tricks that you have the better luck you’ll bring to your fly fishing.

As a beginner you’ll want to try a variety of techniques until you find what works best for you and the water that you’re fishing in.

Thick weeds: When you’re fishing in thick weeds the best lure that you can use is a spinnerbait or a crankbait that is shallow running. Make sure that you cast parallel to the edge of the weed flow if you can. Remember to look at the inside edges of weed beds.

Timber pileups: When you’re fishing in deep timber your main focus will be to not get your line tangled up. Use a plastic worm or a jigging spoon for the best results.

Fishing from fallen trees: If you want to fish from a fallen tree make sure that you pull back your bait so that it runs in parallel to the tree limbs.

This is because the water is very shallow, and you don’t want to disturb the area any more than you should.

Working the area: Make sure that you work in the area where you’re fishing as thoroughly as possible. Try a few different lures if the first one doesn’t bring you success. You might want to think about returning at a different time of day.

Keep a close eye on your lines: Make sure that you keep a constant eye on your lines particularly when you’re retrieving them. Remember that when the weather is cold the bass can strike and completely miss the lures.

Avoid excess noise: The more noise that you make the less the bass will bite.

Night fishing: Night fishing is a great option in the summer months when the water temperature during the day is just too hot for bass to swim high in the water.

Creeks and coves: During the fall months make sure that you check out creeks and coves since this is where baitfish tend to hover…and this means the bass won’t be far behind.

Using surface plugs: When you’re using surface plugs try to pay as much attention as you can to the angle of your rod. You should be holding the rod low when you have the lure close to you and higher when the lure is further away.

Tips #22: Leaders

When it comes to leaders you have two choices: you can buy them, or you can tie your own. If you’re going to tie your own, you’ll want to get an instruction book that shows you how to do this.

If you’re going to buy them, you’ll want to look for a leader that is suitable for the area where you are going to be fishing.

For example, if you’re going to fishing for bream (saltwater fly fishing) you’ll want to use a light leader that weighs about 2lbs.
