What's up everyone! I'm new to fly fishing this year! I live in allegheny county and I'm looking for a few places around south western PA. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I could also use some info on what kinda flys to use in this area.

Welcome to the Jungle!

I'm from the opposite corner of the state, but it shouldn't be too long before you get responses from your neck of the woods.

Welcome, Stronghold, to fly fishing (FFing) and our online community.

If you haven't already done so, take some time to scroll through the threads here in the Beginner's Forum - there's a lot of info. Questions that are specific are easier for us to fire away.

For what it's worth, my usual advice to beginner FFers (and some old hands) is that there are more fish out there to target than just trout - "think outside the trout box" in other words. You can have a lot of fun learning to FF on bass and sunfish and they're easier to catch than trout (most of the time). Also, in your neck of the woods, there is a lot more warm water fishing opportunities nearby that trout streams anyway.

I get all the truth I need in the newspaper every morning, and every chance I get I go fishing, or swap stories with fishermen, to get the taste of it out of my mouth.

There is a need to fish, to be in the water. It soothes the soul...

I can make you feel. But I can't make you think.
