New to the board

Post by Singlespey79 » Mon Jun 07, 2021 5:32 pm

New to the board from the UK having used Sexyloops as a consistent reference point to improving my fishing & casting for several years. I have found Paul’s casting videos to be an excellent and valuable resource, being the mechanics of casting is an aspect of my fishing that I find myself invariably absorbed in. The understanding of a particular cast - what I’m doing (or at least trying to do!) and the evolution that comes with it's application is all part of the fun.
Mainly targeting trout in the UK, fishing both rivers lakes/lochs – I do feel a need to remedy this and target other species on my fly fishing journey. Are there many others out there feel the same way? Fly fishing the flats of Florida for Tarpon would be amazing, alas it will have to be something more closer to home I think!
Anyway, although I’m not one for posting comments generally in social media, I’m happy to finally join the board and you never know there may be a topic of conversation I can contribute to in the future.
Cheers
Michael

Hey Michael, welcome to the Board!!

I had a big love affair with trout but I have to say, if I never caught another one that would be fine with me now. I’m sure I will but I’ve stopped organising my life around them. So I understand you!

I also really fancy the SW stuff. But in an affordable way!

Cheers, Paul
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.

Indeed, I find this part of the fun too. Then again, for me, the other part of the fun is best explained by this quote from George Roberts Jr:
No matter what you think "advanced fly casting" entails, make no mistake: it is from the devilish details that make up the basic stroke that truly masterful fly casting emerges. No fly-fisher can hope to master the fly rod without first mastering the basic stroke. In some ways, no fly-fisher ever really moves beyond the fundamentals.
I can not say that "no fly-fisher moves beyond the fundamentals," but at least I feel like it.

For variety, conservation, or both?
