    Hi Scoocer
    I wish you all the luck with your new fly rod, the advise the guys gave you is very sound. learn the right way first. Like any thing you can pick up the no how as you go along, how ever you can all so pick up some bad habits as well. And they can be hard to get rid of, I no because I went down that road some years ago. As time passes you will pick things up on your own and will develop your own stile. I have fly fished for many years now and I am still learning, I guess we never stop, It is an art form and as such, worth learning.

    ps I have a post (THE REASONS WE FLY FISH) for me that tells it all.

    Dont spend anymore money

    Join a club that has free flycasting days or free tuition.

    Go out on a few trips with them and only buy more stuff when you finally know what you really need.

    Otherwise you'll end up with a cupboard full of stuff you'll never use.
