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:
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.
