I wanted to say hi to the forum, I found this site googling info on nj fly fishing. I have been into bass fishing both fresh and saltwater since a little kid thanks to my dad. About 2 years ago he got a 9 weight st croix fly rod with a scientific anglers reel and was wanting to get into fly fishing in the salt. He started tying his own flys over the winter and I could tell he really enjoyed it. Sadly, last june he passed away too young at 56 and never got to get out there and learn to fly fish and use all the flys he had tied up.
Enough of the sad thou, I would like to get into fly fishing as I have enjoyed all other types of fishing and really enjoy watching the art of fly fishing. I am fortunate enough that my girl also loves to fish but does not get mad if I go alone. Like dad would say, Its like a sore dick you can't beat it.
I am looking into getting a guide to take me and the lady out that will supply the gear and I am also looking into getting a 5 or 6 weight rod for myself since I have the salt water setup already. I am down in Cherry Hill about 10 min from philly but I am willing to drive for a good guide. Any tips or advice on your favorite knowledgable guide and also a good beginners setup would be appreciated.
Thanks for reading time to go explore the forum some more.
