NAFFF, its moderators and members welcomes you to the forum. We hope you enjoy the forum and become an active member. If you have not included your location in your registration you might want to add a general area. It makes it a lot easier to answer a question if we know where you are fishing. Something like South Florida or Central Michigan is fine.

If you are new to fly fishing you will find a lot of good information in the FAQ Section. If you are new to fly fishing and are looking for a rod and reel you should look at this FAQ Post. All new members should read the Site Rules.

This is a fun site and spam or flaming another member is not allowed.

Another note to new members:

The fact that I no longer make sure to post a welcome in each and every "member intro" thread is not because I have become a turd. I just decided it wasn't doing any real benefit to the world any more.

All new folks please know that I welcome you and all of your contributions to the board.

Carry on......

Hello to all from Vancouver
I'm pleased to join the NAFFF. I'm at the start of building a 6 weight "switch rod", a hybrid spey and single hander. I bought the Rainshadow blank last month and just completed reaming the cork handles, Do any of you folks have any experience with "switch rods"? I need to know what lines you've used and what to avoid.

hi all,
new guy here. self taught tier, novice fly fisher but i can handle a baitcaster. only bass and panfish in my area (catfish also if so inclined)
i mostly tie flies for enjoyment. like to see if i can reproduce a pattern that looks like the picture. really got hooked on the gizmos and materials tho. includes hours online and wandering the craft/hobby stores, and seeing what discarded things can be turned into materials or tools. i dont type so punctuation is optional.
came across this site doing a search for homemade tying things. i have a homemade bobbin holder receipe to post on the appropriate forum.
looking forward to learning some things.

Hi fxp,

Welcome to the forum. It sounds like you will fit right in. I will be looking for your home made bobbin holder.

Hello all,

Very experienced fisherman but an extreme novice when it comes to fly fishing but I intend to change that soon!

I primarily fish in SW Missouri at roaring river although the White River in NW Arkansas is not far away and I intend to fish there when I get more experience fly fishing.

Hope to get lots of good info and maybe down the line be able to help others,

Hey DustinK,
Welcome and I'll warn you now... If you get into fly fishing as I have over the last few years your spinning and casting stuff may get a bit rusty!
Happy casting...
