Video on a Brief History of Fly Fishing
The first flies were made of natural materials while today flies are made of artificial materials. The location of where fly fishing originated from is un-specified. But it is thought to be that fly fishing originated from Roman Claudius Aelianus near the second century. Up until the 19th century in Great Britain fly fishing was not very developed. At this certain time period books were written about the art, clubs were formed and fly fishing became the popular way to catch fish in water. In Japan, fly fishing was considered "Tenkara" or "Avu". These terms were used to describe the ways of fly fishing using a rod, line and fly with no reel.
