Re: Newbie to fly fishing
Well to be honest, I still use my spinning rods and tackle quite a bit, it depends on what I'm after and the time to do it.
I enjoy fishing with jigs, topwater baits, spinner baits, and occasionally a pine grub or two.
But my favorite will always be a dry fly, watching a fish come from the depths to eat it, even the refusal is enough at times, it all comes down to the adrenalin rush that we get at that very last second.
Fishing in general is a gift, if you enjoy it, then do it.
If you catch and cook, eat what you harvest and always leave a few for next time.
Not sure I chose Flyfishing as much as it chose me, and to that end I will always be blessed.
