It’s never too soon to start learning about a topic that intrigues you. So many people find out that I fly fish and tell me they have always wanted to learn. I typically just tell them to do it. I often offer to take them fishing sometime and also point them in the direction of resources online. YouTube has been a great resource for me as I have made this journey to learn casting, tying, and many other tips/tactics. Fortunately, Mad River Outfitters, an excellent fly shop out of Columbus, Ohio, has a great YouTube channel that will help you get started.
Their newest series is a great place to start your journey towards becoming a fly fisher. Check it out today. Below I have include the first video, an introduction, and the second video, all about fly rods. While you’re at it, check out all their other videos including: tying, gear reviews, and how to’s. There is a lot of knowledge to gain from the people over at Mad River Outfitters. If you are in Columbus, check out their shop too. Enjoy!
