As an instructor and guide with 25 years watching fly fishing from an educating point of view, the one most important aspect of this sport that stands strong and is the backbone of an experienced fly fishing person are the physical skills needed on the water to “make a fly look alive” which are broken into 3 categories:

-Basic casting skills

These skills are the most important and the basic foundation to becoming an experienced fly fishing angler.
