Hey, Foss, set up a styrofoam cup in your back yard and use it as a target for your flies. you will be amazed at how fast you get real accurate.

Hey Fossil, I am brand new to fly fishing as well but so far its been a blast. I did some reading and talked to a few people before I went fishing. The information certainly helped, but it can be a little overwhelming. Just get a few of the basics down and that will be enough to get started.

My son and I spend alot of summer hours in the high country flyfishing for brookies and trying to hook a Golden trout.

Flyfishing is an art and don't muscle the rod or the presentation will be wrong on the water although brookies are pretty accomidating.

Practice makes perfect..

Hey Fossil:
I know how you are feeling. I start fly casting classes next week. I have always used my ultra light rod/reel trout fishing in Missouri and Arkansas. I was told no way was I allowed bringing that "contraption" trout fishing with my friends in PA. I am looking forward to the classes. I am sure I will be told I am doing it all wrong when I get there. Oh well, all fun with friends.

Hey Diana, where do you fly fish in Missouri. Taney Como and Table Rock are both just 15 minutes from our house. Caught some nice Rainbows and a 15lb Brown out of Taneycomo.

Hey there Spirithawk:

I fish at Mantauk State Park but I go out of the fishing area downstream. I don't care for the combat fishing. I really liked it in Arkansas, below Bull Shoals on the White River. You got a 15 pounder? I am jealous, I was proud of my 10 pound Brown. Where I had the best time was up in Upstate New York. I went last winter, boy o boy we slayed the Steeles! Fun, fun, fun!!

Spirithawk, is your area becoming very populated? I need to find a place where you don't see or hear others/That is one reason I am heading to PA, go deep in the woods, camp and fish without seeing anyone.

Diana

I could show you a couple spots that mostly only locals know about and fish. Like you I like to get away from the crowds. There are also a couple trout farms where you have to pay for what you catch, but are great places to take kids fishing because they're practically gauranteed to catch something. :yes:

Fossil: Yeah, have fun!

Spirithawk:
That's what I like to get away. Last spring I went on a trail ride in southern Mo with the gals from Bass Pro. We went to one of those trout pay places. I didn't care for it, they will hit even on a marshmellow but great for kids!
