Hi BigDon ... Welcome aboard. Learning to fly fish can be very hard or very simple depending on how you want to do it.

Learning to fly cast can be very frustrating ... don't let it be so. Instead, go to my site and download "Excerpts." It's free and covers all the basics you need to contend with until you are convinced of your competency to move forward.

Print the little booklet out in a 5x7 format and carry it with you outside when you practice. When something goes wrong, and it will, stop! Refer to the booklet ... figure out what you did wrong ... only then, try again.

To do otherwise simply reinforces your mistakes making correction that more difficult.

Those that follow this guidance seem to learn very quickly, at least according to the feedback. Those who do not follow my guidance learn little, if anything.

As you go through the learning process, I will be here ... You may contact me privately or publicly, your choice.

Doug

Don,

Be happy to help any way I can ... It is a great sport. To really help you get started, try reviewing some of my resource material posted at http://www.activeangler.com/flyfishing and under the manuscript heading, "Fly Fishing for the Rest of Us."

Doug
