Hi, thanks for letting me join the group. I have recently taken up fly fishing 2 years ago and was only able to get out about a dozen times each year. I much rather prefer to fly fish now than spin cast or any other type of fishing. My goal this year is to get out a lot more and fine tune my technique. I live north of Edmonton and only about 5 minutes away from a stocked trout pond. I've taught myself to fly fish by watching videos and reading books. For the most part I feel like I can fish fairly good. But some more practice will definitely help.
