after reading alot of the posts i am startin to think that fly fishin would be a really good way to go but am a bit intimidated by using the gear.is there alot of initial outlay of money to buy the gear and should a guy get some lessons or just buy the gear and go for it. cheers

For trout, 5 wt rod is the best option, and for salmon, an 8 wt is best... Progressive action is the most versatile for a variety of casting styles. St Croix makes a good product for minimal cost.

For fly lines, get weight forward lines, they will be easier to cast.

Take a fly casting class... it will help alot.

And make sure you spend money on a good reel for salmon, with a quality drag system. Don't cheap out.

And most importantly, have fun!

Twotone, just do it! It's not that expensive compared to other gear & all you need is a few flies in your pocket & you're ready.

Nicole...where's that pic you use on FishBC? ;D
