Fly fishing is one of the most popular sports today. It is usually done in a lake, stream or river that has been specially chosen for the purpose. There are many different varieties of flies used to fly fish, there are a few that seem to be the most preferred for fly fishing in general. The most popular fly is the giant cast. This is the fly cast, which is made with an extremely long rod which is almost waist-length to over two feet. The rod is then held horizontally in the air by the fisherman and the hook attached to the end of the rod as a very short distance away from the other end of the rod.
