In the realm of fishing, the method of angling fish is no doubt the oldest fishing method in existence. It is as old as when man learns to fish with the spear as to hunt prey with it. Using spear as the rod and pieces of bone fashioned into hooks, we can only surmise how successful the 2000 BC anglers were with fishing. And obviously what they do was no fly fishing.In the realm of fishing, the method of angling fish is no doubt the oldest fishing method in existence.

The next recorded event of fishing was in fact a more sophisticated technique (or art as some others would like to call it) called fly fishing today. It was around the 2nd century AD when Roman rhetorician Claudius Aelian took notes on how Macedonian anglers used artificial bait as lures to catch fish; widely presumed that these fishes to be trout from the description spotted exterior.Today, fly fishing salmon is the most enjoyable branch of fishing, more so for the North American citizens. Fly fishing salmon in Canada and other parts of North America is a common outdoor sport enjoyed by multitudes of residents and non residents. Because fly fishing employs more techniques than typical angling, it provides more challenge to the anglers themselves. Using artificial flies than real baits also provides more challenge and lesser hassle in terms of preparation. In fact, most anglers that engage on this sport are more often from tours and independent groups than those living near the vicinity of salmon fishing sites. Non residents drive or fly a hundred miles towards this famed spawning ground to try their luck on a Chinook or a Coho Silver. These mighty salmons are famed for their reluctance to hand over the prize to its captors. A typical 100 pounder, these extra large salmons bust tackles and rip rods away from grinning anglers in the rush of adrenaline who’d then realize that they too can be beaten by fishes.Fly fishing salmon in Canada is a sought after recreation. In fact, the two words became allied when it was leaked that British Columbia was the home of the most prized game salmon, the Chinook or the King Salmon.
