Thread: New all around

  1. Default New all around

    Hi Folks,

    I am new to the forum, as well as to fly fishing. I live in Westchester, NY and recently bought a house next to a large pond full of trout and large mouth bass. Well, I always wanted to try fly fishing and so, thanks to a friend who fishes all the time and said, "it's a piece of cake with a little practice," I went out and bought a fly rod and reel and some flies, and ehem, am now ready to learn (it turns out the piece of cake he was talking about is a little bigger than he lead on ). At the very worst, I will meet some nice people and will have some very funny stories for Thanksgiving dinner. I look forward to the words of wisdom you all have to offer and I thank you in advance for your patience and help and I promise to post a picture of my first catch, even if I hook myself by accident.

    Peace,

    Morley

    Welcome to the forum! When you see your fly disappear and see the splash and feel the tug...well, you will be the one hooked as well as the fish! Great people here on the forum so ask a lot of questions! There are a lot of websites available as well as here that has lots of information that will help make your flyfishing enjoyable and productive. Good books and videos/DVD's are available as well. Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing your first 'catch'!
    "I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...because only in the woods can I find solitude without lonliness..." Robert Traver 1964 (Judge John Voelker)

    Welcome to the group, that lighthearted attitude will undoubtedly make learning more enjoyable.

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