I am an avid fisherman. But I know very little about fly fishing. I want to change that. I am interested in trying my hand with the fly. I am into ultra light/ light tackle, finesse type fishing and I'm trying to figure out with size and type of rod I would like. I am thinking an 8Wt. The problem I have is- I'm not sure if I will be into fly fishing, as I mainly fish off of my boats or buddies boats. I can foresee a high potential for frustration being a novice on a boat with winds, tides, strong currents ect.. I guess my question - Is there anyone here that would be kind enough to give me some insight on these topics ( I know I can get some books, but I appreciate first hand knowledge and help) I would be more than happy to trade boat trips, regular fishing help or whatever for a little guidance. I just don't want to buy a ton of stuff and have it just to go to waste due to my lack of knowledge and experience.
Sorry for being long winded, but I am eager to learn
Thanks in advance!
