You mentioned being about 45 min from trout waters - keep in mind fly fishing works for virtually all gamefish. While you're probably in love with trout at this point, and that's understandable, there are probably lots of warm water opportunities in your neck of the woods for smallmouths, sunfish, and even walleyes and muskies. I spend at least as much time in a year of fly fishing chasing saltwater and warmwater species as trout and I live in an area with an abundance of trout waters. If you have to drive 45 min you're missing out on a lot of quick fishing trips in the evening and after work - esp during the summer. An hour chasing smallies in a local creek or bluegills on a farm pond makes for very nice evening.
