Fly Fishing…..

Fly Fishing…..

Submitted to YourHobby by Neil Keep, England…..

Put simply, fly fishing is a particular method of fishing where flies made from fur and feather are used to catch fish. The biggest difference between this and other forms of fishing is that no weight is used at the end of the line to cast out your fly, it is the fly line itself which becomes the weight used to enable the cast. Look at any fly line and you will see it is very thick compared to standard nylon line used in other forms of fishing, it is the thickness and weight of this line which is used to flex the rod and catapult out the very light fly across the water.

Are you looking for a new Hobby?….


Happy New Year

Hey guys, welcome to 2014. Well now that Christmas is well and truly over, this is the time of year that people say that they need to lose weight, stop drinking and smoking and of course get exercising. Well if you do NOT really want to give up anything then why not think about taking up something, like a new hobby.

Our website is ALL about hobbies. There are so many to choose from, indoor and outdoor and most of the hobbies shown on our site are introduced personally by people who are passionate about their hobbies too. They will give you the basics of what you will need and what you can do, were to go and what you can achieve too. Take a look to see if there is anything that catches your eye.

The site is purely for hobby enthusiasts and has been steadily growing over the last two years. We are constantly looking for people who have a passion for hobbies to share theirs with us.

2014…..Lets just do it…..

Here at YourHobby we would like to be involved at some stage in 2014 in raising money for Cancer charities. We have been affected personally by this disease three times this year, and have lost two close family members.

We intend to honour the memories of these amazing people and hope to take up a challenge of some kind to raise money for charities. We would like your ideas and if you have any experience or advice you can pass on to us here then please do.

We appreciate that many of our contributors are from overseas, but hey, we would really like to hear your stories or if you too have any advice that you can give to us and also to our readers.

This will be a regularly updated post now on the YourHobby blog and website, and whether it be a sponsored bike ride, hike, run or whatever else you can suggest then we will keep you all posted. This is one time in particular that we really would like to have many comments and feedback so that we can raise money to help fight this awful disease.
