Default Anyone willing to fish with a beginner?

Sometime next week? I don't have much (no waders, boots, many flies), but I'm trying to learn as much as possible.

Nick, that is a generous offer.

I repeat the advice I give beginners here on this forum so often in this forum that I put it below my signature so I don't have to keep writing it every week.

Perhaps a sticky thread would be a good idea with all the advice we have for beginners to get started in fly fishing and then when these questions come up we can just give them a link to it.

I'd add - Go to your local TU chapter meeting.

Of course I wouldn't. I will pm you about it. I appreciate the offer also. Drink beer? I'll bring.


FLYBUM: Doh! I wish I would have read one of your posts. I will look into a fishing club here in Denver. Thank you.
