Hey all! new to the site, looking forward to chatting with you guys, receiving advice as well as giving out some of mine. I love fishing, i get out every chance i get. Have been getting skunked a lot lately so i figured id try out this site and see if i can acquire a tip or two. I've been after trout lately with no luck.

Welcome Jazzy!
What areas do  you fish? What kinds of set ups to you have!


OFF is a great resource for tips on dialing into the fish!
Good luck and tight lines!

Thanks for the warm welcome, chalk im in Barrie. and iJay i have a spinning reel, and just recently bought a fly reel. Was out today practising my fly casting... man is it hard to pick up, just going to take time and dedication i suppose.
Cheers!

Cheers!

try not to worry about casting "properly" too much... it's a smooth, flowing motion,  a means to an end.  you may also want to look into the "roll cast"...  it's easy and good for people just learning, once they have the fly already out there...
