Fly fishing is an angling method in which an artificial "fly" is used to catch fish. The fly is cast using a fly rod, reel, and specialized  weighted line. Casting a nearly weightless fly or "lure" requires casting techniques significantly different from other forms of casting.  Fly fishermen use hand tied flies that resemble natural invertebrates, baitfish, other food organisms, or "lures" to provoke the fish  to strike (bite at the fly). Fly fishing is most renowned as a method for catching trout, grayling and salmon, but it is also used for a  wide variety of species including pike, bass, panfish, and carp, as well as marine species, such as redfish, snook, tarpon, bonefish  and striped bass. Many fly anglers catch unintended species such as chub, bream and rudd while fishing for 'main target' species  such as trout. A growing population of anglers[who?] attempt to catch as many different species as possible with the fly. With the  advancement of technology and development of stronger rods and reels, larger predatory saltwater species such as wahoo, tuna,  marlin and sharks have become target species on fly. Realistically any fish can be targeted and captured on fly as long as the  main food source is effectively replicated by the fly itself and suitable gear is used.
