Overwhelming of information is right! I always knew fly fishing was out there but I was never introduced to it at a young age so I didn't get involved with it until last year. I decided to see what it was all about and got a cheap $60 combo and fished the Big Thompson in Estes Park. I ended up actually catching a few fish and that was it, I was hooked (pun intended). I have been reading asking questions and practicing ( I think my wife thinks I'm going crazy) every chance I get. This is a remarkable sport to get involved with. I am getting a new rod and reel for xmas (wife thinks I don't know) so I can't wait to do some more winter fishing. I just never have a clue what I should be using or if I only use 1, 2 or 3 flies for a specific river or stream. I fished the Arkansas this weekend and we caught two minnow sized rainbows
but I just felt I was maybe missing on what the big fish were biting on. This is a great forum so far and I plan on reading A LOT!!!
