101 Fly Fishing Tips for Beginners: Tip #29: Etiquette and Rules you Need to Know and Tip #30: Roll Casting There are certain styles of etiquette and rules that you should follow when you’re fishing for any type of fish.
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”: Whenever you’re fishing, whether on the shoreline or in a boat, make sure that you treat others with the same respect that you would want to be treated.
Keep your distance: When you’re fishing around other anglers make sure that you keep a good distance away from them so that they have enough room.
Take note of the direction that others are casting and give them ample berth both in a boat and on the shoreline.
Keeping secrets: If someone shares their favorite fishing spot with you and asks that you not give this location to others you should honor the request.
Get permission: If you want to fish on private property, such as a farm pond, make sure that you get permission first. When you leave the area after fishing it should look the same as when you arrived.
Other fishers: Keep in mind that not all fishers are bass fishers and that everyone deserves your respect no matter what type of fish they are fishing for.
Fishing license: Depending where you live, there will different rules and regulations for licensing. In most states or provinces, you’ll need a freshwater license if you want to catch freshwater fish.
Your fishing license should be specific to the type of fish that you’re going to be catching. Always make sure that you know the rules and regulations of the lake, river, stream, or other water area that you’re going to be fishing.
This includes when you can fish, where you can fish, and how many fish you can take out of the water.
Tip #30: Roll Casting
Roll casting is when your fly line is pulled back along the water during a back cast rather than being raised from the water. During the forward cast your line will also be pulled back along the water rather than lifted.
You’ll want to use a roll cast when you want a bit of leverage back casting in areas where you don’t have much room or if there is a strong wind that is pulling back on the line.
