Default Let me introduce myself.

Hey Guys, I just wanted to say Hello and introduce myself a bit. I am currently a senior in college in Pennsylvania and am just starting out on the fly rod. I have been fishing with bait casting and spinning rods for the past 16 years. I always wanted to try fly fishing and after holding off for many years, I finally decided to go out and do it. My gear includes a Cabela's Traditional fly rod at 8'6" with a weight of 5. For my reel I have a Cabela's CSR #2. I talked to one of the fly shop employees from Cabela's and this is what we decided on for trout. Because I am very new to this aspect of the sport, any advice anybody wants to give will be much appreciated. I look forward to discussing topics with you on the forum.

Welcome! Although I caught my first fish on a fly rod at around age 12, I didn't get serious until college. I went to Montana State University, and being in close proximity to the Yellowstone, Madison and Gallatin, it was hard to do anything but begin fly fishing. Stepping out on those rivers with a spinning rod is like showing up for your wedding in Carhartt overalls.
