    Go fishing with someone who's been there, words on the internet don't do justice.

    I'm going to the Ford sometime next week, I would be happy to show you some bastardized casting and how to not catch fish! But seriously it's a cool place to do some casting and figure out how to catch fish. The best part is you can see those finicky fish.

    Hey Bob,

    What is "The Ford?" I live near Monroe, is it close to there? I'm interested in getting out to find new water for sure, and could use the help with casting. Thank you!

    Pick up a book, bud. It's all right there. YouTube should also be a huge help. Good luck.

    I have looked on Youtube but I figured i'd ask here also... I have watched fishing clips online with trying to just watch what others do when fishing.

    I have found a few "learn to flyfish" type books also - I will have to get one or two. Thanks!

    You live near monroe, and you and I have not gone fishing yet? Gees

    Keep in mind that I am in Monroe man, I have extended my help before.

    Oh, I'll have to research that place... I've seen that name come up quite a few times… Pretty good place I suspect.

    What's the closest town? If you don't mind sharing...

    Ephrata. It is a fun place to get some fish wood!

    "Curis Creek Manifesto" great beginner's book
    Mel Kreiger's beginner's video (best one I've ever seen)
    take a lesson
    ask for assistance
    spend time on a river & just watch others
    practicing bad habits only entrench those problems...
    start right
