    Hi folks

    My name is Mike, student of architecture at Tuks. Been on 2 flyfishing trips and really enjoy it over the usual pap gooing or coastal fishing. After hearing loads of crap from salespeople all over, I have decided to start learning a bit so I can help my parents make some better decisions with their money, and so I can buy myself a relatively decent setup. After 5 days of fly fishing, I can now cast decently but have had terrible luck catching. In a group of 5 fishing from 6am every morning at Dunkeld for 4 days, we managed to pull 7 pups out, nothing too impressive either. Still had a blast pulling out a 1.2kg, so I am pretty hooked on this. That tactility really makes it! I will probably be posting some threads up soon about reel choice a bit later today, and am hoping to hear about some nice places my family and I can head out for some good fishing.

    Any case, as usual on local forums, lekker community you guys have going here, hope to have a nice stay.

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Welcome to the forum, you will learn stacks here. I have already learnt quite a bit! But still need to learn lots!

    A good place to start is to go to your local ff shop, they have loads of advice. Also like Poppernel said. Talk to the forumersm

    Cheers
