Steve Plut runs the website Fly Fishing Simplified. He is a Fly Fisherman, bow hunter, backpacker, hiker, gambler, wine lover, part-time philosopher and wanna be economist. It appears he is also a big Steelers fan also!
Steve's dad introduced him to the world of fishing and it's become his passion.
Steve's site helps to simplify fly fishing and show you that it's something anyone can learn and enjoy.
Steve was at a Banf film festival and watched a movie called "Eastern Rises" and it inspired him to try fly fishing.
On his site Steve explains how...
"...for years I considered trying fly fishing. I read books and articles on it and all they did is seem to make the sport so complex that I was simply too intimidated to start! Hearing terms like fly line weight, rod weight, floating line, sinking line, dozens of different casts and seeming hundreds of different fly patterns I was overwhelmed." curated from http://flyfishingsimplified.com
It's not easy but you can get enough skill to have fun and catch fish.
One of the reasons Steve likes fly fishing is there are fewer people doing it and that can be a big advantage.
Generally, trout, bass, catfish,carp, bluegill, crappy bass, bowfin and more.
Wading in a stream and fighting the current is a good workout.
Even getting to your favorite spot can be a good workout.
One of the biggest benefits is the mental health aspect of fishing. It's a great way to be positive, and in the moment.
Go fishing, get out on the water. There's only so much you can learn from a book or watching movies you need to get out on the water.
