Fly fishing is a fishing technique with a special rod and reel, where the fisherman starts flicking the line with a small fly (lure) in the air back and fort like a wip. When he gets the fly to where he wants it to land in the water, he lets it fall and starts retreaving it back.
Its used a lot in rivers and lakes, but is also used in salt water. This technique has been used for ages, First rods where made from solid strips of bamboo, individually cut tapered and glued together. Nowadays the rod material has changed a lot.
The Reel used for this type of fishing is different from what we usually use. It is situated very close to the butt end of rod. It is like a drum with a small handle attached directly to spool.
Its not a common way to fish here in Malta, but I know that Simon-G has been practicing it for a long time. It is somthing worth seing.

Hello Members

When I was in Malta last September/October, I took my Fly fishing gear out with my cousins and caught a few Lampuki as well as other species whose names I do not k :)now. I fly fish regularly in the UK. It makes for good sport and the Lampuki seemed to like the lures that I used.
Cant wait to try it again next time I am in Malta

Regards

I can imagine lampuki woul go for a fly!! Must be awesome to catch one on a fly rod!
Ive only done a bit of fly fishing in the uk for trout and salmon (supposedly we didn't get any salmon!) it was fun! I was talking to someone there who had gone fly fishing in cuba for bone fish..now that looks serious fun!!  Grin

I once3 saw a guy who broke a record By using a fly rod to catch a sword fish. The fish wasn't a monster, but it was quite a chalange.

I was fly fishing from the jetty in Marsascala last year, & people going past in boats were looking at me as if I had escaped from the asylum! Shocked Shocked Shocked
I caught a small bream on a sunken lure, & some mullet on a small white nymph (which looked like a maggot or small piece of bread), fished on the surface, it was great to see them take it, then strike before they could spit it out again! Wink

guys, some few days ago i met a guy who practices fly fishing in Malta.
he taught me some tricks and i am sure this kind of fishing can produce in malta.

but...always as maltese we have better and much productive methods than fly fishing. example ....garfish can be caught much frequently than using a fly.

it also applies for small mullet! there are far better ways than catching the odd one on a fly.

i use some kind of flies which i do myself for trolling kahlija and have found such lures very good.

also the ones used for trout and salmon are very good.

i know that some time ago there were foreigners who tried succesfully fly fishing for albacore and also amberjacks but you have to be very patient!!!!!

Placebo I can see I am going to have to educate you to the fly, spinning & bait fishing may be more productive, but fly fishing is the true mark of an angler Cheesy
As the old saying goes "football is a game for gentlemen played by ruffians, Rugby is a game for ruffians played by gentlemen", fly fishing is much the same, its the ultimate angling experience! Roll Eyes

this x2  Grin
Presenting a fly just right to get a 'take' needs a perfect cast technique (which i dont have 100% of the time  Roll Eyes) and its very rewarding when you get it right and get a fish!
As placebo said there are more productive methods to catch a greater quantity of fish which is fun sometimes,but catching a good fish on a fly..is awesome  Grin
Hopefully if the lampuki don't do the same as last year (and after getting one on a surface popper finally!) this time id like to try catch one on a fly. Grin

Unfortunately Placebo & MartinB fish for their stomachs Roll Eyes On the other hand my stomach is big enough already Embarrassed (thank you very much), so the thrill of the "take" is greater than the smell of the frying pan! Cheesy
So I shall be "fluff chucking" (as we call it in UK) when I come out to Malta next month, to see if I can catch something else, I really fancy taking the fly rod down to where we caught those garfish Placebo, I bet a garfish would really give a good account of itself on a fly, I might take the fly rod with me when Redbus9 & I fish Marsoxlokk at night, I can catch some mullet on the fly, while we wait for that "monster" to grab hold of our huge baits! Shocked

Smiley Not really mate if i fished exclusively for my stomach then id buy a boat and put down nets!
I only keep what im going to eat the rest goes back alive i assure you! Also i don't keep under-sized fish..even ones which are abundant like 'cudas
