There are a lot to learn about fishing, especially if you are a complete beginner. With a diverse range of fishing techniques, which one should you choose? Different techniques are great for different conditions based on the type of fish, water conditions and depth, and much more. Besides, you need to match specific technique with suitable rods, reels and lures for the best performance.

In this post, we listed down everything you need to know about the 7 popular fishing techniques. While it’s important for an angler to master different fishing techniques to adapt to different conditions, I suggest that you focus on 1 – 2 techniques that interest you most. Once you see some success and gain more experience, then you can try out others.

#1 Fly Fishing

Fly fishing is a super popular angling method among western anglers where they  use artificial flies to catch fish. Fly fishing is popular because it can be done anywhere from freshwater to saltwater.

Don’t know how to begin? Well, fret not! Just follow the steps provided below and you’ll be fly fishing in no time.

Step 1: Know your fly fishing gears

To fly fish, you need a fly rod. A different technique uses a different type of fishing rod. There is no perfect fly reel or fly rod when it comes to fly fishing because everyone has different preferences. The choices are endless! Rods and reels are comparatively flexible. Basically, just get and choose your fly fishing equipments based on 2 main fish sizes, which are:

Small Sized

Logically, you will need lightweight flies  with sizes around 12 to 20 which in turn uses light power and slow action rods.

You would want to use a rod that is easy to control and able to cast the fly (in this fly fishing technique however, it is more of a casting the line rather than the fly but I will explain this later) within let’s say, 20 to 30 feet?

You would also want a slow action rod which bends midway for you to get a “feel” of the fish you are trying to catch the moment it bites your fly.

Big Sized

Now in this case, you need flies which are heavier since the fish you’re catching are larger in size, true?

Thus, you will need medium to heavy weight rods with either medium or heavy power and medium or fast action depending on the fish size and also the distance you want to cast your line to will be greater than 30 feet.

You will know since larger sized fishes are much more aggressive and fast when compared to small fishes. That is where you get the thrills.

Step 2: The method to fly fish

Not sure which fish to fish? Worry not because I have summarized the method to fly fish into two types of fishes which are:

Type 1: Freshwater Fish

Which usually includes trout as it is commonly found in stillwaters such as lakes. You can also pinpoint their location in places where they can seek food, warmth and most important of all protection.

A beginner at this? Does locating fish intimidate you? Try checking out our review for the best fish finders to brighten your fishing experience up!

Fly Rod
  • 4 to 7 weight rods ( but I personally prefer 6 to be the best).
  • 9 ½ to 10 feet long but it also depends on your preferences and your height.
  • Long rods work best with floating and slow sinking lines as it improves rod cast. It also provides greater distance between the indicator and fly. It helps to form loops necessary when casting.
  • Your fly rod must be able to steer fish during fight. Out and away from boats or any obstacles.

You will need a solid smooth drag system with an interchangeable spools to change your fly lines with at least 50 yards.

Fly Lines
  • Floating Lines: You will need long leaders which are 15 feet or greater with slow leading presentations with the speed of retrieve and depth you want.
  • Sinking Lines: Sinking lines are either slow sinking or fast sinking. Sinking lines are measured in inches per second (Type 5,6 or 7). The numbers listed correspond to the sink rate of the line. For example, type 2 sinks at 2 inches per second. In this case, I personally find slow sinking lines works best when fly fishing.


Presentation: The rod tip of your fly rod must always be in touch with surface of water to ensure a straight line connection. Fly fishing does not only depend on the fly you use but how you present and retrieve.

Retrieve: Unlike rivers with a moving current, lakes are still (hence, the label stillwater). That is why you have to sort of move your flies to resemble a live bait in order to sort of tempt the fish in to take a bite off your fly. Below is a video which I found incredibly useful and detailed which can help you execute the perfect fly fishing retrieve.
