Default Hello

Hi there,
I have been lurking on the forum for a while now, well, just got back to the states a few weeks ago, and had been wanting to start fly fishing, so i just decided one day to go and take a casting lesson, and it has started. I am getting a rod sent down from home that was a gift, and hitting the rivers hopefully by the weekend! And to top it all off, last night i tied my first fly, didn't turn out perfect, but it was fun at least! well, have a good one.
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Welcome to the forum and flyfishing. I hope your homemade flies work! I still use the "store bought" food to catch bass and bluegills.

Have fun on the water!

Cheers,

Robert

Andrew! Hope your first few times hitting the water are more productive than mine I've been getting skunked left and right, but at least I'm still having fun. Good luck!

Hey, just wanted to say thanks to all for the warm welcome. I really am looking forward to learning a lot, now if it could only get a bit cooler and we could get some rain, everything would be a-ok. Thanks everybody.
Andrew
