Dream Fishing Trips
It may be cold where you live but that shouldn't stop you from thinking about fishing. Now is the time of year to invest some time in planning your dream trip this summer. A little time spent now will help you to plan the perfect fishing trip. In planning a trip lot's of people just think about where they can catch the most big fish and wind up with just average fishing trips. Really there should be several other considerations. Here are a few ideas to think about when planning.
Think about what kind of fly fishing and what kind of fish you most enjoy. Do you like sight fishing to rising cutthroats in hatches, slinging streamers for aggressive strikes from big browns, or even nyphing for big bows down deep? Or maybe you prefer something exotic - peacock bass, roosterfish, taimen, dorado, and several others are on my list of fish to catch before I die.
Do aesthetics matter? Even carp put up a fight but the local canal will never compare to say a crystal clear freestone river tumbling down through forested mountain terrain or a beautiful tropical saltwater flat teaming with sea life.
Think about the proximity of other options. No spot is red hot all the time so places near other places are always high on my list.
Think about accommodations and food. This is a matter of preference and budget. I will say that a good night's sleep and great meals make even mediocre days seem great.
Research what gear and flies to bring. Nothing spoils a trip like not being prepared for whatever may arise. Whether it's not having the right fly to entice that behemoth you spot, not having the right rod and line to make a good presentation, or not having the right gear for the elements, you'll wish you'd thought ahead back in February.
