    Hello all,

    I'm Ryan, from Jacksonville, Fl. I am new to this forum and also to fly fishing. I recently bought my first rod and reel and have been out fishing everyday for the past 3 and a half weeks. To say I'm hooked would be a major understatement. When I'm not fishing I'm thinking about it and practicing casting in my pool. When I am sleeping I dream about it. Is it weird to sleep with my rod/reel and gear? I look forward to learning volumes from people on these forums and hopefully finding other people local to Jacksonville here.

    Just thought I would introduce myself here.

    Thanks
    -Ryan

    Welcome to the forum and to fly fishing!! No it's not weird to sleep with your gear unless you wear your waders!! But since your from Florida I'm guessing that's not an issue! LOL. I've been fly fishing for 30+ years and I still think about most the time.

    Welcome to a great site! You will find much info here. As far as sleeping with your gear, you may want to de-barb the hooks on your "sleepie" flies. I lived in south Florida a few years back and became very addicted to peacock bass fishing. I still find myself "dreaming" over it.
    Tight lines.....Mike

    Welcome to the fly fishing forum and the sport of fly fishing! I was stationed at Tyndall AFB near Panama City when I was in the Air Force, but I wasn't in to fly fishing at the time so I can't help but we have some members from FL so hopefully they will chime in. Don't be afraid to ask questions, we all started out as newbies and we have some very knowledgeble folks on this forum that are more than willing to lend a hand.
