I'm just a beginner at fly fishing and would appreciate any tips or pointers on the proper techniques of fly casting, any literature or websites that can help me. I also need a little help with tying together the backing, fly lne and leader???

Thanks everyone

I've been fishing for about 25 years and have owned a flyrod for about 5 but this past year I vowed to only use my flyrod for the entire season and now I can't see myself going back.

My suggestion to you is get a subscription to a magazine like Fly Fishing and Tying Journal and read read read...!!
And most of all fish with others that flyfish as well... It doesnt matter if they are veterans or not 'cause learning with someone else always helps get me to the next step in the learning process. And trust me Flyfishing will be a learning process for as long as you fish.

When I have free time I go to Buntzen Lake and practice my flycasting, yes it has a hook on it but I just cast for an hour or two and work on consistency in my casting stroke and when I throw a good one I try to think about how it "felt" and then try to duplicate it..

Thats my 2 cents...


Or rent a video on fly casting from your local flyshop

There are lots of books and videos on fly fishing and all of the things that go with it. A good site I found for knots is here; http://www.killroys.com/knots/knots.htm. Orvis puts out some really good videos that show how to tie knots as well. They can be found at your local fly shop or at http://www.orvis.com. Have fun and good luck.
