gusztav levelre probalok valaszolni, de angolul.

excellent abstract  gusztav. in a few points i want to express my opinion.

1. rod:  our prolonged arm,
the rod must work for us, thatfor it must be of best quality.  it is true
that you are paying for the name but there are so many smaller and bigger
differences in a high quality rod which you will find out after months of
fishing (blank material and thickness, cork quality,  reelholder quality,
steelquality of the rings, varnish. lifetime guarantee etc). what you will
realize additionally  is the ability of hooking a fish when a lot of line
is out. with cheaper rods you may cast, but very often you cannot hook the
fish.

the problem here in hungary is, there is no  steady possibility to compare
as there is in austria or germany.  so i want to advise everybody to buy
only best quality products.

i use rods from 170 cm to 300 cm, and from aftma 3 to 12 depending on the
type of water. for nymph and streamerfishing, rather slowlier rods, for
fishing with dry flies stiffer and faster. 80% of my fishing happens as
nymph fishing, 15% streamer and 5% dry. there are not to many possibilities
for dry fishing, and the fish are usually smaller than the ones you catch
down and deep.

2. reel: is not of to much importance, since very seldom you catch a fish
you can drill from the reel. it has mainly the function of storing the line
and a few meters backing. unfortuanetly the best way of storing is on large
arbour reels. and these cost money. if somebody does a lot of flyfishing,
buy a good reel, and there are more good suppliers on the market than for
rods.

3. line
for dry fishing: i use WF-lines - gives you possibility for distance casts,
as well into the wind,  easier and more perfect serving, the leader must be
balanced properly

for streamer sinking, deep:  a combination of a few meters hi-speed sinking
line (ca. 8 m) spliced with a swimming level line, eases the line controll
during fishing , swimming line is not sinking into the rocks,

streamer and nymph fishing very deep, more than 4 meters: i use a shooting
head 3 meters, fast sinking and running line

WF-lines for streamerfishing in surface regions: allows you better
transport of wind resistant flies

DT-lines: nymphfishing, where you have to make a lot of rollcāsts, and when
you need the resistance of the line to hook the fish.

leader
a tapered leader i use only for dry fishing and nymph fishing in the
surface regions, when i can see the fish or the bulging.

all my other fishing happens with monofilleaders of one diameter, lenght
beween 30 cm and 500 cm. in the bottom region of a river. this is now very
much depending on the fishing technique.

i liked very much what you were writing about the flies. if you want to
catch fish you must risk your flies, they will be consumed by bushes, rocks
etc..
a good fly shall be tied in 2 or 3 minutes, and shall cost nothing. is must
not look nice for us, is has to have the key-attraction - size, silhouette
and colour -and movement. with the variation in movement one fly is enough
for different feeding situations.

you have already promoted some of the best alround flies.

materials: wild mix of materials you can find. don`t forget the
mothballs!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i have my experiences with moths. this is why i
more and more switch over to poly dubbings.

techniques: difficult to describe,

fishes: almost everything, but other fish than salmonides and pike you
should see to be sucessfull. i caught eel as well - my dry fly was
garnished with a thick, fat worm :-)))))))

flyfishing is a very comprehensive form of fishing, what makes it that
attraktive.

it demands from you to focus on fishing, thrilled by the rising trout, wade
in fast river and you have to concentrate as when driving above 200. when
fishing with the fly you will forget everything besides it.
flyfishing costs money, especially if you visit a good trout and grayling
water. the equipment costs money. but if i compare with matchfishing it is
still cheap!!!!!!!
