Welcome. I too am new to fly fishing. After losing all my spinning and bait cast gear in the river I decided to open a fly fishing combo that I received years ago as a gift. I thought, well I've been trying this so now's the time. I watched some you tube videos, went to Walmart and bought some flies. I can't believe I haven't done this earlier. It will be the only gear that I will buy in the future. My advice, check out you tube, there all some good videos for beginners. Also, if your budget permits, (mine doesn't) Mad River in Columbus has classes.
Don't wait like I did. Pick it up and start. I had a blast. Fist time, I caught 15 nice bluegill.
