    Default Another Newbie...

    Hi Guys & Girls, not new to fishing, fairly new to fly fishing, brand new to fly tying & this forum. (Loving it) Looking forward to learning from you all (preferably only the stuff that lands the fish) and hoping to add value at some stage. I am not going to say too much here, to eager to sniff through some of the topics that caught my eye on the way here.

    Regards (and tight lines of course)

    Welcome ... I suggest you spend a few days (or longer) looking through the old posts - nearly everything you need to know is in there somewhere

    Welcome indeed. I see you are based in Gauties. Which facet and species do you wish to target ?
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    Thanks for the welcome guys. Herman I intend to target anything that will go for a fly I've only caught Trout, Bass and Small Mouth Yellows so far. I seem to have a particular liking in yellows on fly. That being said, I had an unfortunate experience at a local trout pond in Pta. While ploughing my fly through the muddy water prospecting for the wandering trout, a monster carp passed in the shallows right in front of me. I nearly ended up chucking my flybox contents at him and....he disappeared just as suddenly as he appeared. So, that actually got me interested in fly tying as the shops in gauties generally dont do too well on the carp fly department. With a little bit of practice I might be into carp soon as well.
