Have you considered fly-tying? When I was a kid I look a school-club class and that's what we did. You could probably buy a setup used for cheap. All you really need is a small table vice for the hook, some thread, wax, super glue, and feathers. And maybe some deer fur.

Great fun; especially if you start catching fish with them!

Bubba-J is right. Tie your own flies. Besides saving lots of money, you can tie flies specific to your needs and regional colorations. Besides, fly tying is the appropriate time to drink during a flyfishing activity. Fine handcrafted beers and/or single malt Scotch or Irish is recommended. I think that you will find that as the night wears on your flies will become like girls. The more you drink the better your flies will look. licklips

I would like to try fly fishing as well. But never have. You have given me a good Idea for Spring.

Along with our new Outback I have decided I want to learn to fly fish. I bought my pole, reel, fishing vest, waders and a few flies. Now I need some water and tons of patience from those smart fish. I'll have my how-to book in one arm and pole in the other. My next step will be to learn to tie my own flies. Those little buggars are expensive.....lol. I bought some at Estes Park for about $2.00 a piece.

Wish me luck!!  I'll post my catches if there are any.....lol. thumbleft

My husband and I have been flyfishing for about 4 yrs. We live in Delaware so we go to MD and PA. We tie our own too, but buying flies is like collecting anything else, you never have enough! MD Tuckahoe state park is great for flyfishing and camping on the Tuckahoe River. If you ever get this far east, look us up!

If any of you fly fisherpeople ever make it out this direction (most of you seem to be east coast for some reason?), I would love to have a lesson or two. I can lead you to some great streams... I just don't know what to do when I get there! shy

I took some of you guys advice and purchased a fly tying kit. This is a blast...... :irvine:. I've tied about 30 flies so far and I'm almost to the point I don't need the DVD anymore.......lol

I love flyfishing, my dad is a avid fly fisherman so I grew up with it and love it. I like using a float tube but I don't get a scientific about it. I have fished with guys who study the hatch, know every bug there is for a fish to eat and spend hours trying to match the hatch. I use more attractors than anything like a Coachman or a Royal Wolfe and in most cases I out fish them :lol:

At times fly Fishing can be a challange but at other times you will be the only one catching fish. A great sport every fisherman should at least try it, Dry fly is the most fun! :)

Or...you could just come East and - um - learn a thing or 2! wink_smile Hey - if I can learn to flyfish (and I did!) you can too. Problem for me now is I REALLY enjoyed fishing the FAST (like - Class 4) water....now the pond at Wolfwood seems a bit dull. It really is a very different sport from "regular fishing"....part art....part science....very "zen"!!! :fishing1:

....but all you OBers who are considering this past time....be forwarned....it is as addictive as the TT! (at least the rod, reel, and a couple dozen flies don't add much weight)
