Jim Wallace· Smells like low tide.
Tom, Welcome to a lifetime of learning. I, too, am at the early stages of the flyfishing quest. I heartily agree with Philster that the library is unsurpassed as a free source of all the written info you will need. I just checked out a few books from my local library, and ordered an instructional video by Joan Wulff that is currently loaned out. There's plenty more on my list when I'm through with these. One book that I am finding to be usefull and full of tips is The Art and Science of Fly Fishing, by Lenox Dick and Friends(1993 Frank Amato Publications). This book has been used as a basic text by some flyfishing schools and covers alot of subject matter...so be sure to check this one out.
