I searched the forum, but could not find an exact answer to a few specific questions I have.
I fished for 30 years exclusively with spinning reel until last year I decided to give centrepin a try and I love it. Whenever I fish with a float, its always a centrepin now. I have moved to Burlington, ON and I live within walking distance to Bronte Creek, so I went there a few times last year to test the waters. However, I feel like water is too shallow (even in some pools) to do centrepin + float + bead setup. That being said, I would like to learn fly fishing and have a few questions:
1. Considering I already know how to use centrepin, how hard will it be to learn to fly fish?
2. Is there a way to fly fish with centrepin + float, or I must buy a fly rod with fly reel and have that one setup for fly fishing, and keep my centrepin rod setup for float fishing?
The reason why I ask the second question is because I also fish Grand River a lot, and I would be able to both fly fish & float fish there, and I dont really like the idea of bringing two rods into the river (one on my back and the other in my hands).
Note: My current setup is: 13' Rod, Centrepin, Backing, 8lb Main Line (Float + Splitshots on Main Line), 6lb Leader (around 18"), hook.
Any suggestions would be appreciated and if someone knows that this was already discussed about, please point me to the topic!
