I'd rather go and hook a monster bream on fly any day than on lures!!! Yeah you might not get the numbers but there's been days when the flyrod has slayed and hards n softs didn't. I tend to change flies more often lately than I use to rather than just grind away with a favourite.

Now the kids are adults and I find that I'm thinking more and more about flyfishing again. I have lots of leisure time on my hands now that I have retired. I will always love catching bream on lures, but now there's time to do both.

I'm really enjoying my flyfishing. It's something pretty special when you manage to catch a decent fish on a fly you've made yourself. It's also great fun and also very satisfying tying your own flies.

I was just wondering how many other forum members like to dabble in a bit of flyfishing from time to time.
I wouldn't know how to do it but it looks awesome. I am currently learning to lure fish for Bream, I have always thought it was a natural progression in a scale of how awesome some one is at fishing LOL with Bait at the bottom end, lures mid range and fly being the ultimate skill.

I wouldn't say that there's a natural order of progression when it comes to fishing. There are old blokes around who have bait fished for their entire lives and they probably would know as much as, or more about fish and their habits as anyone. Going from bait to lure and then to fly is perhaps a progression for some of us, but not for everyone.

I would rate myself as a crap bait fisherman, a reasonably good lure fisherman and a very mediocre fly fisherman.
