I just joined after finding out more about this site at the Best in the West
fly casting tournament.
I really enjoy fly fishing and fly tying, however, so far I have only fished for bass and blue gill, shellcracker and the other still water panfish.
Looking forward to doing some trout fishing in the future.
It's about a three and a half hour drive from here to Helen, Ga. so I hope to find some where a little closer by reading articles on this site.
Seems to be a great bunch of guys and gals here.

Default Welcome

As a newbie as well I can tell you that you will find lots of good information hereon this blog. I assume you are south of Atlanta. If that is so I can tell you this time of year the best trout fishing is on the Hooch. It will save you some drive time too.

If you refer to the Hooch section of this blog you will find plenty of information. Flies techniques, places to fish, rules and regs etc

I have fished for trout for many years in North Georgia and we are blessed to have this resource. That having been said the Hooh may be one on the best places for someone new to trout fishing to learn. Number of fish is crasy high so success can come early.

Just keep the water release in mind always and be safe with a life jacket.

Good luck
