Hopefully I didn't make a terrible decision here.... Thanks for all the input I have learned alot and hopefully a few other new policy to fly fishing will benefit as well from this poll. Btw casting is way harder. Than it looks this is definitely. Going to take time before I put a hook on my line,I would have hooked my neck, back of head, arm pole, hat, just about everything on me yesterday....... Kind of scary!
You are not alone. Casting is definetely harder than it looks, but once you got it it becomes habit. And I've heard good things about the cabela outfits, especially for a starter rod. Once you get your cast down you will start realizing what you need to make it better for your conditions.
