    Guns So.. I'm starting to fly fish

    Got a rod and reel for free (7/8 weight rod) and I've picked up all the necisary supplies. Started practicing my cast in the yard and i'm getting pretty decent at it. I'm going to be going after mostly smallmouths, largemouths and panfish. Anyone else here fly fish and have some wisdom to impart?

    I learned some basics. It's easy with a clear pond, but the trick is when there's lots of trees over a stream and you don't want to stand in the water....

    I once heard of a dude that came to ER with two hooks in his ear, don't be that guy.

    The only wisdom I have to impart is... take some lessons.
    If you don't have anyone to teach you, it's worth paying someone to show you the basics so you can forget about mechanics and enjoy whipping the water to a foam with a piece of fluff on a hook. Awesome.

    Wait, I do have a piece of fishing wisdom:
    There's no such thing as bad weather... there's only the wrong clothing.

    I suggest trading in your rod for a spear and mask and go hunting plaice off the coast. My summer hollidays just fly by with my spear and mask.
