Default Help for a beginer

Hi folks,


I have recently decided that i want to give fly fishing a crack, i have a rod and reel etc but now i've hit a wall of confusion.

Can somebody please explain what a dt line is and a wf line is and what the difference it'll make to my intermediate line? I already have a floating line, figured it'd make sense to have both.

I have been looking round and cant make any sense of it, there are so many different flies to choose from, i plan on starting off on a medium sized still water in cheshire. I dont know if that will help anybody make any suggestions.

Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance


Ben

Hi Ben,

I hope you'll consider joining the forum as a regular member soon. Rather than trying to write this out I suggest you search through the threads here > Fly Lines - The North American Fly Fishing Forum

It may take a little looking but you'll find about every question about fly lines we ever had ask and answered in this sub forum.

Like Hardyreels said, this forum has been invaluable for me as a new fly fisher. I also went to a locally recommended shop and talked with the guys about what I needed and why. One of them was even nice enough to take me out fishing, since he was going anyway, and show me the ropes.

I'd go with the WF line, it's heavier on the end so its easier to cast.
