My name is Ben and I'm newly addicted to Fly Fishing. I've actually only been out once but got hooked. My girlfriend and I live in Central Ohio and are always looking for other fisherman/woman in the area to hookup with out there.

We are kayakers and waders at this point and hope to possibly float tube in the future. While I'll never give up fishing for bass with ye ole pig n jig, I have truly fallen in love with the art of fly fishing.

We're planning to head to Mad River or Mohican in two weeks. Any suggestions, comments or anyone that wants to come along are welcome!!

Welcome Ben! I often drive through Ohio on the 90, but I'm based out of Buffalo. Maybe we can meet up and fish some time! Either way, welcome to the forum, you'll like it here!

Welcome Ben

I'd recommend you check Mad River Outfitters for some river reports as well as a great tackle and fly tying materials resource.
If you're hooked on Fly Fishing after one trip, wait til you get into flytying!!!!

Fontinalis it's funny to see you on this board also because aren't you a member of OGF also?

I've been trying to find a nice B&B out in that area to take the girlfriend for the night but haven't found anything yet. Might also take her to Clear Fork and stay up in Loudonville.

Ben: Welcome to the forum and the great sport of fly fishing! I can't provide any help with fishing in your area, but I'm sure others that see this thread might be able to shed some light!

OGF is Ohio Game Fishing. And there is another user in the Fly Fishing Group over there with the user name of Fontinalis. What are the odds!!
