Goner Message Board / ???? / Fly Fishin' vs. Other Kinds-A Fishin'
Posted: Jun 7, 2007 6:48 pm
 
I'd like to get some fishin' in on my trip to Scotland at the end of June and I keep getting asked what kind-a fishin' do I wanna do:

Sea fishin' sounds exciting but it seems kind-a involved and expensive.

But fly fishin' sounds like a hoot.

Also, should I hire this guy as my guide:

Or, how about this guy:

I have heard that deep sea fishing is crazy spendy and many a captain will rip ye off.

Here in Florida, fishermen pals tell me that pier, seawall and flats fishing is where it is at. Me, I have only fished in lakes and rivers before. And I have never fly fished.

I just smack 'em with a rolled up newspaper...

Cast netting is fun. It's work and can get messy. Fresh live mullet is where it's at. Very rewarding. Fly fishing here is popular. Seems like a lot of work. Trout are very delicate fish.
Every lay down a trot line before?

Fly fishing is very relaxing, and once you get the hang of casting, it's not that hard. Definitely get a guide; he'll help with getting the line tied and everything. Fly fishing is more a commune-with-nature thing, because you actually target the fish and cast right at him, vs. trolling through the high seas with a cooler of beer ...
