Default Re: New to fly fishing! Help needed!

Hey Agl welcome to the forum, there's a bunch of friendly folks here that can help you get going.

You've got a big advantage over a lot of folks since you've been fishing for a while--- so you already know the drill about where to find fish. And once you get going, after a little casting practice, you'll have a blast.

I think you'll find that there are a ton of free resources on the web for you that you can find with a little googling, and there's a ton of info on this site in the FAQ section and past threads--- we get a lot of folks asking questions about starting up in fly fishing.

Tell us what kind of fish you'll be chasing and let us know where you are. That will tell folks a lot about the basic gear you'll need such as the "line weight" of (rod/reel/line) to look at. From there it's just a question of narrowing in on a budget---- and the good news is that there are a lot of great choices at different price points.

For now I would hold off on the ebooks and let us know where you are and what you'll be fishing for.
