Fly Fishing is Life

You may not believe this but Fly Fishing is Life! YellowStoneFly of the Idaho Fly Fishers Blog believes and so do many of our readers. You all have heard of the New Age Preppers which are "coming out" in droves. Well, I am here to tell you that many are taking up the sport of fly fishing because it is cheap, productive and can put food on your table if the need arises. Now basically we support "catch and release", but what if there were no grocery stores? How would you feed yourself and your family? Many now believe that fly fishing may very well be the answer.

The following you may find interesting and is courtesy of the website LivingStrong:

General Vitamin Content

Based on a 2,000-calorie diet, one cooked trout filet weighing about 2 ounces has 1 percent of the recommended daily intake -- RDI -- for vitamin A. The nutrient is an antioxidant that neutralizes disease-causing molecules known as free radicals. The fish cut also provides seven of the B-complex vitamins: It contains 7 percent of the RDI for B-6, 77 percent for B-12, 18 percent for thiamin and niacin, 15 percent for riboflavin, 14 percent for pantothenic acid and 2 percent for folate. As a group, the B vitamins facilitate digestion, making it possible for your body to extract energy from foods.

General Mineral Content

Trout has all essential minerals in varying amounts. The cooked fish provides 3 percent of the RDI for calcium, 7 percent for iron and copper, 4 percent for magnesium and zinc, 19 percent for phosphorous, 6 percent for potassium, 2 percent for sodium, 34 percent for manganese and 14 percent for selenium. Minerals play different roles to help your various systems to function. Potassium, for example, is an electrolyte. The nutrient powers your tissues, cells and organs with the electrical signals it transmits.

Additional Nutrition

Trout is rich in amino acids, the precursors of proteins. One 2-ounce fillet contains sufficient amino acids for your body to produce 33 percent of the recommended daily intake for protein. It also provides 8 percent of the RDI for fat and gives you 118 calories, fuel that takes 25 minutes of moderate walking to burn.

In your "bug out" bag, you can easily pack your rod, reel, a vise, hooks, a few simple tools and enough fly tying materials to put trout on your table for years to come. These do not weigh very much. And if you simply follow our simple fly tying instructions (Fly Tying on our QuickView page), print them and carry with you, walla, you can easily feed your loved ones in a time of need. Remember, only keep what you need to survive.

Tight lines and arm shattering takes to you all. Please consider joining our blog and share your thoughts about this and other posts.
