Post Re: learning rod

Hello: I've been reading thru the posts, trying to get a better grip on fly fishing. I've been fishing for more years than I care to admit, but never been around fly fishing. My son bought me a fly rod for Christmas, and I've been trying since to determine what kind of reel, line, etc. The terminology is so different that I can see a long learning curve, but I'm really struggling with one thing...I don't understand what the huge advantage is to fly fishing. I'm not trying to put it down- I'm trying to validate to myself why I should invest a lot of money and time to learn a different style of fishing. I figure the posters in this forum have a reason they enjoy fly fishing more than other styles and hope they share it with me.-
