New to Fly Fishing

My Dad gave me a Loop fly rod for Christmas last year.  It’s a 9’6” 6wt AEG Series fly rod.  New to fly fishing, I was eager to get some new fly gear and start learning.

My good friend Evan has been fly fishing his entire life, so luckily for me, I’m able to learn from him first hand.  He’s taught me the basics about line, tippet, flies and casting techniques.

I try my best to balance fly fishing and traditional fishing.  Both methods are equally fun.  Catching a bass however with a fly rod, is a bit more rewarding as it takes more skill to fly fish.  I look forward to visiting my parents in Hawaii again soon, so Dad and I can fly fish the Oahu bays for bonefish.
