> > I have recently started trying to fly fish and I can tell that I need a little help. I am intrested in finding out if their might be a fly fishing event or seminar available to help people learn more about the sport. I have been fishing with spiners, corn, powerbait, and other bait, but I am looking for more of a challenge from trout fishing. If anyone has a good sugestion I would be very intrested in knowing about it.

Although I have only fly fished two years I have gotten a lot of help. Newer library books are very good. Hanging out at the local fly fishing shops is invaluable. You must not be afraid to ask a lot of questions. Finally, get some equipment and start practicing. Your experience is no match for any countless number of stories or books. Tight lines.....
