The popularity of fly fishing in America peaked in the early 1920’s, especially in the eastern states of Maine and Vermont. The development of cheap fiberglass rods and synthetic fly lines helped to make fly fishing even more popular. However, it wasn’t until the early 1950’s that fly fishing popularity really peaked. So, there it is, a brief overview of the history of fly fishing. So, go and get your rods and artificial flies and begin your fly fishing journey.
