Hey everyone, nice forums here. I have a newbie question for those interested in helping out a newbie Fly Fisherman. I bought a flyrod, and have no clue how to mount it? I managed to get the reel on but the nylon string and other stuff has got me all confused, especially the poofy orange weight thing that has a loop in it for tying onto the line.

Anyone have any videos to share with me, on the know how to get me started?

I've fished for many years as a troller, on quiet lakes with electric engines only for just Trout, when i noticed nobody was catching fish with our lake clear wobblers with the extended 3 foot line on the end with a worm dangling.

Then it dawned on me when i saw a man catching one trout after another for about an hour or more, while some few of us were catching 1 or 2 per hour between the 6 & 8pm times. I said, darnit i gotta get a flyline, which i did, but it seems so complicated to put together, that's when i did some searching on google and came here to get some answers.

I still haven't done anything with my rod yet but put the reel on the rod...

shona123,

Ask away. Have you put your rig together yet?

If not, here is a good reference:
http://www.flyfield.com/davetips.htm

For beginners, I recommend the DryFly and Dropper method of Fly Fishing (Note: my dropper length is 12"-18" most of the time, 8" for small streams, 18" - 4 ft for lakes):

I hope this helps. Let us know if you have more questions.

Vinny
