Default Re: It finally all came together.

Your fate is sealed. You are now doomed to a life of long drives, longer daydreams, reading Gierach, calling in sick on Mondays and Fridays, fly shop frequenting, topo map reading, river report searching, coffee drinking, gorp eating, gear buying and spending way to much time reading and writing about it all in this here forum. Welcome to the fray and congrats!

Congrats BGP!

The seed has been planted... it won't be long before you're spending more money on chicken feathers at the fly shop than you ever did on chicken at the super market.

Tight lines!

Well, if fly fishing is being doomed then I hope I'm doomed for eternity.

And I'm already well aware of the perils of spending too much money on your hobby. You think fly rods are expensive? I once spent $3,000 on a microphone. I spend $65 for a single pack of bass strings that I change every 2 months. So to me fly fishing is a cheap hobby.

Of course, I haven't tried tying my own flies yet. And I need a new rod and reel, and vest, and boots... uh oh...

It's a great addiction ! And it's bottomless. You will never have enough equipment. Definitely never have all the flys you need. Amount of fish species available can't be mastered in a lifetime. Can't fish all the body's of water in 5 lifetimes. if your paying attention you will see something new every trip out. You will learn something new everyday. And the beauty of your surroundings will sometimes be overwhelming! But that's what makes the addiction so incredible. Enjoy every trip out. I do.
