The snow is slowing melting as the warm rain falls from the sky today. This has prompted me to think about my first year of fly-fishing as spring quickly approaches and what are my goals. I have several and they are rather simple: gather all the necessary equipment I will need to make this an enjoyable and "successful" year; learn to attach the fly to the line securely; find trout, cast accurately to where they are located and then land any fish that I am fortunate to hook. Oh yeah and not to put to much "pressure" on myself to be perfect immediately.
These are simple goals for sure but what are your fly-fishing goals as spring approaches?
Also, what are some valuable "lessons" that you have you learned over the years that you would pass along to an inexperienced angler?
