Hello everyone. I am a complete noob. I want to get into fly fishing but I do not know where to start. I thought I would pick the brains of those that have gone before me. Any and all advice will be appreciated. I am not a money is no object kind of guy but I am also not a cheapskate. Thank you.​

Read the sticky at the top of this sub forum. It has a ton of info in it and can get you started. If you have specific questions after that, then ask them. Hope it helps.

Take a class from a nearby fly shop, buy a moderate-fast action 5wt rod and good reel like a Lamson Konic that has a great drag system (plan on at least $250 total for both), then hire a guide for a day and tell him that instead of just hooking fish you want to work on casting, how to read the water, and how to decide what bugs to use...and have fun with the process!
