Default New fly fisherman and member saying hi!

Just dropped by to say hello to all. My name is Mark, I am 26 and live in upstate SC. I am a new member and fly fisherman. Been researching it for a while but was put off because it looked difficult. After watching a few helpful video it didn't appear as hard as it looked. So I gave it a shot. Went to the local fly shop and bought a redington crosswater 5wt combo. I practiced a couple days and then went to a local lake. Had a blast and got a handful of bream and one tiny little bass. Went for the second trip last saturday and came away empty handed. Nothing caught and only one nibble all day. My dad also had no luck. The weather was rough with fairly heavy rain all day. Might have something to do with it.

Also looking to pick up a decent vise in the next week or so and give tying some flys a go. Looks fun

Anyways, I am loving fly fishing and look forward to continuing to do it and learn more about it. I have already found a wealth of info around here.

Thanks,
Mark

Thanks fella's. I'm having a blast already with it. I definitely need to keep practicing but I have already improved I think. I can't wait to get out for another go.

Haven't had any disposable income for a while ha. Too many hobbies. The list just gets longer and longer

I know what that's like, I like to hunt, ride bikes, and fly fish and tie. None are cheap!
