Greetings friend! As with everything; there is always a learning curve and fly fishing has so many. That is the beauty of it.
If you keep your mind open to new ideas and always welcome pointers; you will progress faster than most! I have found those that are too prideful and close-minded have the least amount of diversity to offer. Just my observations.
One thing that I forget at times is to use the search feature on this forum. You can find tons of information. Also; open up a simple wordpad or notepad program in a separate window and copy/paste some of your favorite tips/topics you find.
“Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will, & creative imagination.
These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.”
