Hey Taylor welcome to the forum, make yourself at home here and feel free to ask questions if you have 'em. There's lot's of good stuff to browse through in the FAQ section and our general forums too.
You may also want to check out this nonprofit group that's affiliated with the Federation of Fly Fishers too if you haven't already:
Hawkeye Fly Fishing
They have a lot of events throughout the year including casting lessons, group trips, conservation activities etc and it would be a great way to meet some new fly fishing buddies and accelerate the learning curve.
