During your freshwater fly fishing trip in BC , it is always best to have a good understanding of the fly fishing equipment and tactics that are successful on the waters you will be visiting. In BC, and certainly in the lakes around Caverhill, almost all fly fishing is done from boats or from some form of fly fishing craft. In most instances, lake bottoms are too soft for wading and often the best fly fishing areas cannot be reached from shore. Ten to twelve foot long wooden, aluminum or fiberglass boats setup with oars are ideal for these small stillwaters. Another essential item is anchors, preferably two, that can be deployed off the bow and stern of the boat so that it stays in one position despite changing wind directions. This is really important when there are two anglers in the boat trying to control casts and retrieves.
