    If you’ve got a green thumb and you’re looking for a fun way to make some money, setting up a farmers market stand is a great idea! Fresh, locally grown produce is in high demand, and growing and selling your own food is incredibly rewarding.

From hydroponic systems set up on rooftops to outdoor greenhouses, there are plenty of creative ways to get your garden growing.

    What is Fly Fishing? A Simple Guide for Beginners

    If you’re looking for a fun and exciting new hobby, you might want to give fly fishing a try! It’s a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy some time in the great outdoors. And, if you’re lucky, you might even catch your dinner!

    What is fly fishing, and how is it different from regular fishing? We’re glad you asked! We've created this simple guide to explain the basics of this fun sport. We'll also review the gear you’ll need and discuss how to prepare for an unforgettable fly fishing getaway.

    What is Fly Fishing?

    Let’s start with the basics. What is fly fishing? It’s a special fishing technique that involves presenting bait, which looks like a fly, at the top or just below the surface of the water. While traditional “spin fishing” is usually done by casting bait out into the water and waiting for the fish to bite, fly fishing is far more active.

    There’s a real art to learning how to fly fish. Most fly fishermen (and women!) enjoy challenging themselves to perfect their techniques and catch as many fish as possible. While fly fishing used to be primarily used to catch trout, today, people are using the technique to catch all kinds of fish.

    While both spin fishing and fly fishing can be a lot of fun, fly fishing will get you more up-close and personal with nature. It’s a bit more difficult to learn, but, once you do, you’ll find that it’s one of the most rewarding sports out there.
