Default Another new guy...Really NEW

I just stumbled across this site while I was looking into fly fishing. You see I am about to retire in April and moving from CA to the black hills of South Dakota. I have always wanted to learn the art of fly fishing, but never had the time. Now, I am going to have all the time in the world to seek out some fishing holes and enjoying some me time. I just spent 30 years taking bad guys to jail and got pretty good at catching them, so I figure standing in a stream is good therapy.

I plan on searching a lot on this site checking out some of my options on equipment and just learning the jargon. Right now it is a little bit overwhelming, but I am sure I will learn it soon enough.

This seems like a good place to start and am looking forward to being a part of this community.

Hi Uncle Buck,
Purty new here myself, If I can help you out I will offer my .02 cents worth.
Hope you enjoy the site as much as I have in a very short time. I just hope it gets a little busier in here.

J.

Hi unclebuck,

Welcome to the forum. There are a lot of good fly fishers that are members of this forum. Just jump in and don't be bashful about asking questions. We were all beginners at some time in our fishing career. Looking forward to your post.

Frank

Thank you for the welcome. I have been on here using the search function like crazy learning what is what. It has been very informative and I know it will be useful when I start shopping. I think that I will have a pretty good idea of what I need. In fact, once I get going on this, I'm guessing I will be here quite a bit asking tons of questions.

Thanks again,

UB

Welcome to the group! Once you have a question that the search function doesn't lead you to, be sure to post it.
