Greetings fellow anglers.

My name is Joe. I convinced my wife that I wanted to start fly fishing. Whether or not this is going to haunt me is yet to be determined. (Let the jewelry shopping begin!) Anyway, a nice chunk of money and a lot of sucking up, and I'm set up. Let me just say, I've only been out a few times, and I absolutely love it! I caught my first fish fly fishing yesterday, and you couldn't beat the grin off of my face.

While doing some research on local fishing spots and tactics, I stumbled on this site. I look forward to hanging out with you all online and possibly bumping into you on the water.

Tell her not to worry. Wait until you start tying and shopping for bamboo rods!

Welcome, guinness angler! The above advice is good, but I would suggest getting her hooked too! :smile:

Do what Paula says..... my wife loves to flyfish and doesn't quibble a bit about a new reel or three.
