Thanks for the encouragement all...I'm not getting out as often as I'd like and have limited access to places to fish... But flyfishing is as much fun as I've had in years....

Keep it up, and don't feel like you need to run out and buy a really expensive setup. I agree with the others that encourage warm water fishing. The fish can be much more forgiving, and you will learn better techniques without the risk of spooking a bunch of finicky trout. You can work on presentation, getting a drag free drift, nymphing, etc. on sunfish, creek chubs and smallies, then go after the trout. That's what I did, and I am a better flyfisher for it. And you already know this, but continue to read this board, and contribute to it when you can. The folks here know of what they speak, and they are very open and willing to share information with others that have the same love and passion for the sport.

It turns out (due to where I live) that I end up annoying the Sunnies in the tame c&r ponds in the parks. There's really only two or three trout streams that I can get to on short notice...and I really do enjoy the warm water fishing as much as stream fishing...

The way the weather's been, even the Wissahickon feels like bath water...

If you want to add on to your hobby, upgrade and spend less than you would on a new rod. Put your own together.

That's how I upgraded, now every fish I catch on that rod I see as more of an achievement than a rod that I have not had that kind of time with. Great to hear you're enjoying it.

I started out looking for sunnies on a lake or pond in a kayak. Went from there to trout, now I'm back to pike and bass. Love it. Keep the faith.
