We snuck up on a fly fishing class where the students learn how to cast on
grass! It happens to be a practice session for customers of Sanibel’s
famed Norm Zeigler’s Fly Shop who have purchased a fly rod outfit. Try your
hand at luring the best saltwater catch around!
Fly fishing is an angling method in which an artificial “fly” is used to
catch fish. The fly is cast using a fly rod, reel, and specialized weighted
line. Casting a nearly weightless fly requires casting techniques
significantly different from other forms of casting. Fly fishing can be
conducted on the Gulf of Mexico from our shoreline, on a fishing boat or
by wading in our shallow waters.
