Default Greetings From Jacksonville

I just picked up my first fly rod this fall. Hopefully I'll actually get to catch something with it this weekend. I'm still working on casting, though, so I'm not holding my breath.

My son (6) and I are Team Fishbusters. I came up with it as a way to encourage him to fish. He loves slaying the bluegill in the retention pond across the street and I want to do everything I can to keep the fire lit.

Sometimes I tend to put the cart before the horse so I've been tying flies like a madman. Maybe one day I'll get to see if they actually work.

I also enjoy hiking and consider myself an avid hiker. My goal is to merge the two hobbies as I get further along the AT

Welcome to the forum Teamfishbusters

One small tidbit of info that will help you enjoy the sport more. Learn to enjoy the art of the cast and presentation, seek those moments when the fly lays out and flutters softly down to the water. As your casting improves, so will the distraction of fish striking at your fly.

Dave

Welcome to the forum! My cart is several miles away and I have yet to purchase the horses, so don't feel alone on that one! Granted, I get to fish sometimes but I tie a whole lot more than I fish! I'm sure the team will be doing plenty of fishbusting soon enough! Looking forward to seeing photos of the team's adventures and of your ties!
