Learning to Fly Fish in PA –Part 1 – The Journey begins..

Print Friendly

For years I’ve wanted to try Fly Fishing but never had the chance. Finding time to get out on the water and do ANY kind of fishing has become a challenge! Now I find that I’ve some time to fill up and I think it’s time to learn Fly Fishing.

The first thing I did was to do some research. I wanted to find a couple of good books to read on the subject. I found:

 

Book: The Orvis Fly-Fishing Guide by Tom Rosenbauer

Book: Trout Streams of Pennsylvania by Dwight Landis

 

Together, these two books cover just about anything you need to know about getting into this pastime. I would recommend reading these BEFORE buying any equipment. The fundamentals in those two books can save you some money!

 

After doing the reading, I figured that I wanted to pursue Trout in Pennsylvania Streams. I was not interested in lake fishing for pan fish or pickeral, nor river fishing for salmon. Trout was what I was after. Brook, Rainbow, and Browns in streams to be specific.

 

Looking around in my general area, I found myself surrounded by pristine waters with massive public access! The most notable water being Brodhead Creek.  Wikipedia Article: Brodhead Creek

 

All I have to do now is figure out the mechanics and have some fun!

I’d like you tag-along with me on this journey.

As always, Please feel free to email or comment on this Post with feedback, suggestions, or thoughts. I always like to hear them.

 

Until next Time…Stay Curious!
