I am a new fly fishing enthusiast, living in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. Fishing generally in the area is very good with lots of rivers, streams, and lakes, I am also fairly close to the great lakes, Ontario and Erie. The are many opprotunities to fish for, steelehead, trout, pike, and crappies, plus lots a good bass fishing during the warmer months. I plan to begin my foray into fly fishing, by spending at least a day on the river with an instructer and guide. Looking forward to the new season.

Hi romeolima, welcome to the forum. Going with a guide that can instruct you in fly casting is a great way to start. Make sure you tell the guide you are more interested in learning than catching fish.

Welcome to the group!

I agree with Frank, but i might say to have the first half of the day dedicated to instruction and then the second half more on fishing.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

Welcome romeolima,
Hope you enjoy the time you spend with our group, anything we can help you with, all you need to do is ask, we have a fairly diverse bunch here so someone should be able to answer your questions.

Also, you should get aquanted with "jocelyn", he's also a Canuck, that can offer you a bunch of info on eastern Canadian waters.
