Tips for Fitting in on Your Lee’s Ferry Fly Fishing Tour

We here at Lee’s Ferry Fly Fishing have the pleasure of offering fishing trips for people of many experience levels. If you are relatively new to fly fishing, you might feel a little out of place when you embark on a trip down the Colorado River. Of course, there’s no reason to feel this way, but it’s still a great opportunity to learn more about fly fishing so that you can feel more a part of the group.

One of the easiest things you can do is research some common fly-fishing terminology and equipment. If you understand different types of fishing equipment you will have an easier time adjusting to your first trip, without needing to ask what everything does. Knowing the terminology can also help you interact with other fishers and understand what everyone is talking about on the boat. There are plenty of resources out there, and of course your guide and fellow fishermen will be happy to give you a few pointers.

You should also spend a little time practicing using your reel. While it takes time to become experienced at something like changing your spool, if you are familiar with your reel you will have a better chance of catching fish right away. Becoming familiar with several different types of knots can also be useful. Most reels come with instructions on some of the basic knots you may need to use. Spend some time away from the water familiarizing yourself with the basics.

Coming prepared is also another important tip. You will want to make sure you dress appropriately for the weather and boating conditions, while making sure you have enough storage space for all of your equipment and supplies. If you are organized you will be able to quickly pinpoint where all of your gear is and ready yourself at a moment’s notice.

These are just a few ways you can make your beginning fly fishing trips as safe, fun, and enjoyable as possible. Stay on your toes and you will be well on your way towards acting like a pro. Remember, don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you’re ready for a true Lee’s Ferry fly fishing adventure, contact Marble Canyon Outfitters to make reservations today.
