If you already have fly fished, the main thing you need to figure out is what to do with your off hand. It may take you a couple of minutes to adjust to the casting stroke, I don't know if I can put it in words. It's very similar, but gentler.

The flies you already use will work great. The combination of a longer rod and lighter line will allow you very precise control over how you present your fly.

I would say on the average, the time spent between first picking up the rod and catching a fish is about 5 minutes. Unless of course you are fishing on your backyard lawn. It may take a little longer for the first fish.
