Re: New to the forums!
Welcome and those are some great photo's! My mom and dad when he was still alive, used to go to Campbell River yearly for about 6 years to fish for Silvers. My dad wasn't a fly fisherman though. He loved to troll with casting gear.
Attention New Fly Fishers and those just wanting to improve- Join a Fly Fishing Club. They have classes on every aspect of fly fishing for beginners to advanced for free or cheaper than offered elsewhere. Some offer mentor programs. You will make friends with other fly fishers. Clubs often have outings in which members pay special group rates for guides or to fish prime private access areas.
