Davet...Welcome to the forum.
Being a relative newbie to fly fishing, I have several suggestions that may help you getting started.
Find somewhere on land with short cut grass and practice your fly casting A LOT, trying to catch fish while learning to cast is frustrating and will only slow down your learning curve.
Spend some time using the search option of the forum, there is a vast amount of good info hidden within.
And when you can't find the answers that your looking for? Just ask
and I promise somebody on this site will have the answers that your looking for.
Finally...We love fish porn
so send us some pics of your fish...
