New from Northern Illinois
 
Hi My name is Wayne, I am a senior citizen, absolutely new to fly fishing. I have members of my family in France that fly fish, maybe I can learn enough to join them. Am on fixed income so very expensive ( but great quality ) rods to learn with, will be difficult. I am located in Northern IL. county of Lake and town of Zion, approx two miles to Lake Michigan and lots of shoreline smallmouths. I am an empty vessel to be filled with fly knowledge. HOWDY

Howdy Wayne, if your looking for education on fly fishing then you came to the right place. Prepare to have your brain filled with fly fishing knowledge.
