Default Back to fly fishing and having a blast.

Well I have had a fly rod since I was about 8 (which was 35 years ago) and I could count on my fingers and toes the number of fish I've been able to catch on a fly rod (I still have that old yellow Eagle Claw Trailmaster by the way.)

Anyhow, I got the 'bug' again a month or so ago. I broke-out all the old fly tying stuff, picked-up a DVD, surfed the net and Voila ... I'm actually catching fish.

No trout nearby unfortunately, but the panfish have been a lot of fun. I was catching them today on a little barbless ant I tied about 25 years ago. I guess it's never too late to start fly fishing (again).

I knew the web was good for something

Well done.

That's all I have for now.

Good to hear you are back to fly fishing, YouTube is your friend when it comes to fly tying, you will be amazed at all the fly tying videos on the web.
