Thread: Just an Intro

  1. Just an Intro

    HelloI am still fairly new too Fly Fishing. Two years ago I broke a couple of bones in my back and was out of commision for about a year. During that year I read and watched everything I could on the Art of Fly Fishing. Once I was able to walk without assitance I bought my first Fly Rod. Instead of doing the exercises my Physical Therapist prescribed, I went to a local lake and walked it and learned how to cast. Since then I havn't picked up my spin or bait cast rods and have purchased 4 more fly rods. My next goal is to start tying my own flies. I am sure I will have lots of questions as they arise and will appreciate any advise you can give.Thanks onthefly

    Hello on the fly. I can relate to the broken back thing. Fly Fishing is great theropy. I have a little trouble fishing rivers for long periods, but mostly cause of tensing up while standing or crossing a river. The Simm's back support is my best friend.
    What kind of fish do you target?

    Welcome to the group! Let us know he we can help you catch more fish, tie new flies, and anything else.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    I will have to check out the Simms back support. I mostly fish for pan fish and bass, largely because of what is available to fish around here. but, I caught my first Steelhead last week. Wow!! Was that a real treat. I have caught quite a few large bass and even a few larger carp but neither gave my drag the workout like that steely.
