FLY-FISHING

To those who practice it, fly-fishing isn’t merely a sport but a mystical combination of art, religion, and science. All-About Fly Fishing [about-flyfishing.com] offers advice on casting techniques and gear.

Fly Fish America Online [fly fishamerica.com] teaches the craft of turning colored thread and bristle into irresistible lures, and it offers detailed regional reports to help you find the ideal casting spot.

For saltwater fly-fishing, wade into Reel-Time [reel-time.com] reports.

SURF FISHING

You don’t need a boat at Saltwater Fishing [geocities.com/yosemite/ 1133], which explains the basics of surf casting and pier fishing.

Once you’re ready for deep water, Allcoast Sport Fishing [sport-fish-info.com] reports on diverse sites, including Australia and Alaska. Charternet.com: Fishing Charters [charternet. com/fishers] lists boats available for rent around the globe.

Fans of “the greatest sport on earth” cast their lines at the Bass Fishing Network [bassfishingnetwork.com] to discuss equipment and technique. Before you dive in, consult The Ultimate Bass Fishing Resource Guide [bassresource.com].
