Fly Fishing help
Posted 19 June 2005 - 11:06 PM
I suspect most of my initial fishing will be on local lakes (I live in Lytham St Annes) and perhaps the odd small river trip.
My initial thoughts of which I seek advice -
1. Would a 9' #6/7 rod be adequate as a starter?
2. How does one decide the type of fly/lure/pattern to use?
3. Is winter trouting as hard as winter carping?
4. Does anyone know of local waters around the Fylde?
thanks in advance

I have been practising for 2 months with my cousins 10' fly rod on the beach and can stick a 10'leader on a dustbin lid from about 25yds, so the actual casting is ok...it's more the size and type of rod and choosing a fly that I'm stuck with.
