Default Hello from San Diego!

Hi,
Over this summer vacation I learned how to fly fish while away on vacation, and it's got me hooked!

I live in San Diego, CA, but am moving to Montana for college. As I understand it Montana, specifically Helena, is a hub for some of the best trout fly fishing in the world. I'm super excited about this opportunity.

I have not bought my first rod yet, but I am doing research and believe i'm close to a purchase.

I'm an avid learner, and look forward to learning the tricks of the trade from you guys!

Thanks,
Mike

Mike: Welcome to the forum! If you haven't seen the YouTube video "Sipping Dry" make it a point to see it. It was shot just up the road below Holter Dam on the Big Mo.

Mike: Here are some other ideas to help you learn. First browse this site and use the search function, you will be amazed at the amount of information you will find.
Also checkout the Orvis Learning Center it has some great information for beginners. How To Fly Fish For Trout, Bass & More | Learn Fly Fishing With Orvis

Also take a look at the Orvis Fly Fishing Podcasts by Tom Rosenbaeur, there is a lot of great information there, especially for beginners.
The Orvis Fly Fishing Podcast with Tom Rosenbauer

Also take a look at Ask About Fly Fishing Internet Radio, they have some great episodes in the archives. I think you have to join to listen to the archives but it is free for a limited time.
