New to Fly Fishing
Hi Everyone,

I just want to introduce my self on this forum. Just went fly fishing for the first time at Putah Creek today and have a blast (even thought I didn't even get a bit). If anyone lives close to Vacaville, CA and ever wants someone to come fishing with them please let me know, I would love to meet some people that are into this sport, as I don't have any friends that fly fish. Also, if anyone has any general tips or recommends if would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Josh,

This forum is full of information, just start clicking on thread titles that look interesting and you'll be surprised with some of the in depth discussions on flies - techniques and gear.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, the more visible you are the more likely to find a member who is nearby. If you didn't include your location in your posting info at the upper right on your posts, do that. If you look at my top right you'll see where I am located. When people know you are nearby they will reach out to you. When they know nothing about you,....... well, they know nothing about you :)

Welcome to the Forum,

Welcome to the forum Josh. Give this place 90 days of dedicated reading and you will be amazed how much these guys will teach you. Wish I lived close so we could go fishing. You'll find somebody nearby if you hang out here awhile.

Re: New to Fly Fishing

Welcome to fly fishing and hope you stick with it as a hobby, recreation, or lifestyle. I'm sure as you progress it will all combine into a lifestyle as it always seems to be the norm in most cases!. I live a stones throw away from you so if you're ever looking for a partner on the water hit me up. I'm always wading a stream, floating stillwater or navigating a river. I fish mostly during the week so often times have an open sit on my raft.
