Default New Guy From Pennsylvania

Great site you have here. I signed up in April but I just read and then read some more. I was told once to just shut up and listen (in this case read) at first because you will learn a ton. There will be a time to ask questions. Well, that time is now. I am pretty new to fly fishing. I've fished all my life but just picked up fly fishing a couple of years ago. Some has come easy and other parts have been a pain. I have so much to learn still. This site has help me a lot and I hope it will some more.

Being new at fly fishing I went after panfish first and I've been going after trout (rainbow and brookies) a lot more.

Hi,

I was born at the Williamsport hospital; lived in and fished the state for more years than anywhere else. What part of 'Western' are you in?

Welcome to the discussion threads,

Ard

Welcome! I agree, sometimes it's best to just listen (or read) before opening one's mouth. That said, sometimes you can save yourself a lot of time by asking a question or two. I remember when I started fly fishing some of the terminology was confusing and a simple explanation helped me quite a bit. Feel free to ask away! I'm sure you'll find folks here knowledgeable and helpful, as I have.
