Default New to fly fishing

Hello, all! I'm new and don't know much about fly fishing. But, I'm here to learn all I can. I hope to learn enough to contribute information, someday.

Welcome to the board,

Seems like you are in a perfect place to learn fly fishing. There is a fly shop called the Leland Fly shop which I believe is associated with the Golden Gate Angling and Casting club. I am planning to go there to learn more about casting soon.

I also look forward to your contributions to this board. Your fishing stories in your neck of woods help us learn more about fly fishing.

Tight lines

I just dumped a in your Sf bay thread, but I'm sure you'll enjoy this forum. There is a whole lot of useful knowledge and experience wrapped up in here, coming from a lot of great people! As far as contributing... I still haven't contributed and I've made several hundred posts so I'm setting a pretty low bar here

Also, I second what TX is saying about Leland, they seem to be quite the institution, and you can't argue with the club being one heck of a resource. I believe another member on here said their dues are somewhere in the 30-40 dollar/yr ballpark?

Before you cast that first fly, pinch the barb down and put on some safety glasses and a hat.

Welcome to the forum.

LOL! I'll definitely be careful with the flying hooks.
