Fly fishing is for everyone -- whether you're male or female, old or young, and no matter where you live. Whether it's wading a sun-dappled stream, casting on an East Coast beach on a starry summer night or angling for big trout amid the changing leaves of fall, I've had many of my happiest moments while fly fishing. I'll share what I've learned and help you discover this great sport for yourself.
