Fishing Close To Home Chapter 13 - Fly Fishing How To Videos From Orvis

Fishing close to home is all about getting more time on the water and still enjoying a happy work and home life. Whether it’s the easy pleasure of panfish in a local park, or the challenge of matching wits with a weary carp, broadening your horizons will get you more fishing time and make you a better angler when you do take that trip of a lifetime. Some of us are also fortunate to have trout streams fairly close to home, but many of these are small, intimate streams that are passed up by most fly fishers. We’ll show you how to fish them, too.
