I'm very interested in expanding my fishing horizons and experiences by taking up saltwater flyfishing. I've been fishing the backbays and inshore areas of Cape May county for more years than I'd like to admit now, but I've never touched a fly rod. I'm stepping way outside of my angling comfort zone, as flyfishing will be a whole new world for me. However, I'm inspired by the challenge of learning new skills and excited about pursuing new form of fishing! I'm slightly intimidated to even submit this post, given all of the resident expertise here, but at the same time, I figured what a better place to start!
I have a ton of questions ...What's a good resource for me to consult to become familiar with the basics? What type of rod/reel should I consider purchasing? What do I need to look for in a rod and reel that will be used to catch stripers, blues, etc? What other equipment do I need to get started? And, how in the world do I go about learning to cast properly? I'm wont go one, but you can see I need alot of direction!
Thanks for listening to a rookie and I appreciate any ideas, help, or direction that anyone is able to provide!
