Fly fishers don't be too hard on me and my funky cast I'm still learning. This was my first time casting a fly rod from the boat.

Side note: thanks Alen and Jamie for the push to start useing my fly rod cheers

Awesome post. Great job. Gar1970. I have a 3weight and love it. Fights are awesome especially with a nice Channel Cat. Big Redear are a lot of fun along with nice bass. rockon

I completely agree Laker., I can hardly wait to hook into a big bass or carp. The more I fish with it the more i like it fish

The sooner the better as it takes time to learn. It can be frustrating in the beginning but the rewards are well worth it thumb lots of room to practice casting on the bank of falcon fish I started with a 9ft 5wt but found it awkward for me I switched to a 6ft 2wt and its so much easier for me to cast.
Thanks for your reply Tommar cheers
