Since finding the renewed interest in fishing, I'd thought it a fun goal to learn how to fly fish this year. So, to that end and with the help and encouragement of my wife, I think I'm all geared up to go. Dennyman sold me a 9' 9WT Fenwick and a 9' 6WT TFO with all the fixings (line, leader, reel, etc) at the November swap meet in Chilliwack and I've since picked up a selection of dry and wet flies and lures. I was also given a set of Bare waders (little bit baggy - that okay?) and picked up some felt bottom boots and a fly jacket. Also been reading up with the L.L.Bean Fly Fishing Handbook and the Flyfishing by Furzer books with leaders in hand trying to practice knots. It's been a studious winter.
That all said, I plan to head out to the 'wack tomorrow to give it a shot for my first attempt at trying to at least cast decently. Having gone out before I'm not worried about where to go - I'm worried about looking like an idiot, invading the space of others (which of course won't happen if I watch where I'm going - usually pretty good that way).
Not really sure I had a point to this post other than to wave and say "Hello, I've joined the club" so to speak.
