Well looks like Santa is being nice to me and is bringing me my first fly rod and reel. Now I'm researching the best way to not be an idiot on the river. Anyone have suggestions on who might be offer classes in January? I live downtown Seattle so any where king pierce or snohomish would be good for me. Does anyone have any guide books that might discuss what species to fish for and when? Grew up bass fishing and the occasional trout trip using spinning gear but after my first Steelhead trip using flies decided that thats the way to go. So far I have only a rod and reel, no line, flies etc... I am trying to learn on my own at 42, late but still able to learn Any tips would be appreciated. The rod is an Orvis clearwater 6wt and I haven't been able to peek inside the reel yet I love being a kid again. If you have any experience on what that rod would be best used for please pass it along.
