Thread: Hi all!

  1. Default Hi all!

    Greetings from the Great Lakes, everybody.

    My name is Ira and I'm new to the fly fishing scene. My interest was sparked by several things - spending time with friends who are die-hard fishermen, the desire to learn a sport that is both relaxing and challenging, and of course, film.

    That being said, I'm still wandering around in the dark on many things (terminology, saving up for a decent rod (what is with the pricing?!?!) and reading up on as much as I can from the pros).

    Hope you are all well and I'm looking forward to contributing to this fine forum!

    Peace.

    Hello Ira,

    Welcome to the forum, the pricing thing is something to learn as well. There are many good rods on sale used, this thread may be helpful if you consider a high end rod at a used bargain price; Tips For Buying Used Rods;

    I have them new and used but always have my eye peeled for a value. As for brand and model this is a great place to get opinions and testimony regarding rods.

    Now reels...... there you go again, another complete journey.

    have fun,

    Ard

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Welcome to the forum........as far as pricing goes, just keep in mind, that you don't have to spend a ton of money to have a ton of fun!! There are bargains to be had. You just have to do your research and shop for bargains!!
