  1. flyfish

    Fly fishing is a method of fishing that involves using a lightweight, artificial fly to catch fish. This technique requires a specific type of fishing rod and a specially designed line. The artificial fly imitates the natural food of the fish, such as insects, baitfish, or other organisms in order to lure the fish to bite. Fly fishing is often done in rivers or streams but can also be done in various other bodies of water, including the ocean. It's used to catch a wide variety of fish species and is often considered a more challenging and artful form of fishing.
