I cant get enough of fly fishing.

I never thought I would be a convert but its just a outrageously addictive sport.

I am starting this thread for all of us and those of you who love, like or are interested in Fly Fishing.

Post up questions, Places to fly fish, Thoughts, Equipment pics, Fish pics and tales of adventure!

(Here is my new rig I got off of FB marketplace for a ridiculous price. )

Nice set up should be good for bass, bream, and rainbow trout. I'd be carefull with that set up in salt unless its a sealed reel.

I use a 7wt for specks/reds in the grass flats near Navarre using mostly clousers that I tie myself. As often as possible, I also fish some rivers in Western North Carolina for rainbows and browns. You're right, it's pretty addictive and something new to learn for those of us who've thrown spinning tackle for decades.

I used to fly fish saltwater, but mostly fish freshwater now.

I have fairly nice 3wt from Cabela's, a 5wt club from Walmart and a could of Tenkara rods from Tenkara USA.

I have been wanting to do some saltwater fishing again, but a river and some ponds are just so close.

Hello, my name is wyld3man and I have a fly fishing problem:)

I fly fish everywhere, inshore, offshore, creeks, ponds etc. I do take a spinning rod and a bottom rod out when I go fishing just so I have options. I find the casting alone is relaxing and the attention to detail in order to catch fish with a fly rod makes you a better fisherman. It's kind of like hunting deer with a rifle vs a bow. Nice thing about fly rods is they easily fit in the overhead compartment on an airplane. There really are not too many places I have not tossed a fly.

I actually live in Baton Rouge but am fortunate enough to have a condo in Pensacola Beach . I fly fish a lot both fresh and salt. Spring finds me fishing for bass and bream in Louisiana both in the Atchafalaya basin and even subdivision ponds. Late fall and early winter I am in the marshes catching specks and reds -- flyfishing vs. casting is about 50/50. As someone else mentioned I much prefer to fly fish but the wind can ruin that ! Last summer I caught my personal best speckled trout wading in the Sound just past Portofino and it was on a fly rod ! Chartreuse/white clouser ; 27 1/4 " long and 7.2 lbs. Was using a 7wt. fly rod . Also go at least once a year up to either the White River or The Little Red River up in Arkansas for rainbow and brown trout . According to my wife I have too many rods from a 3wt. to 9 wt. -- like I count her damn shoes !!
