Re: Seeking help with decisions for a fly fishing newbie
Thank you all who have replied so far... I should have thought to give more info on my location and what type of fishing I plan to do. I live in upstate NY about an hour west of Albany in Cooperstown. I seem to be close to several premium trout rivers. I am with in 2 hrs of the Beaverkill, Delaware, West Canada Creek, and I'm sure a lot of other smaller streams. I'm about an hour or so from the southern part of the Adirondacks. Trout will be my main goal although I would like to someday fish for steelhead and salmon. I'm under the impression that there is good options for that within a few hours drive to the north. I don't believe I'll have a problem deciding what to buy, I'm just having a hard time deciding between paying for teaching and having to wait longer to acquire the gear, or buying gear and learning on my own.
