Re: help

just go! get out there and go after it. worst thing that can happen is you'll lose some flies. when you catch your first fish, you'll be hooked. maybe you can hook up with someone in your area to go with. where are you located?

Re: help

Go to a pond with some open area and go for it. I went last weekend and did just that and had a blast. Bluegills were a lot of fun.

Re: help

Tater is spot on, bluegills hit dry flies hard and are a blast, you can have fun while practicing your casting, just remember to concentrate somewhat on your casting, lol.

But depending upon our weather outlook and precipitation many trout streams may get too warm in a couple weeks or sooner so give them a try too before the water temps hit 70 degrees or higher.

And remember, when things get aggravating just slow down, or stop, and think about what you're doing. With fly casting you can develop your own style, see what works and what doesn't work, learn by doing, and experimenting.
