    The pool is a great idea... Also take advantage of the clear water to watch the fall rate of the different flys, streamers and midges. Practice different retrieve techniques and watch how your streamers move thru the water. Wish I had a pool to practice in when learning.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Absolutley go for it. I have a large fountain in a park near my house with about 100 feet of water around it. It is the ideal place to practice. It will be drained as winter approaches but has been valuable as a practice spot. It is a lot different than just casting on the grass.

    A question ? The chlorine or other chemicals in the pool water wouldn't affect the fly line or make metal parts in the reel rust ?

    Simple answer is 'No.' Chlorine level is so low it will have no effect. But do rinse off your equipment when done. Well, one proviso to that: If you can actually smell the Chlorine I'd take a pass.
