Beginner with questions
Hello, I'm very new to fly fishing... haven't even gotten to the water with it yet. I have a few Q's: Is it necessary to use a leader and a tippet or is a leader good enough? Also, what techniques should I use for fishing still water lakes? Do I use cast and retrieve methods? I have been reading about fishing streams and rivers, but haven't seen much on lakes. This is concerning lakes in the San Fran area. Thanks in advance for any advice.
