Title says it all.I have never fly fished.

What would be a good entry level fly combo and corresponding lures/flies and accessories?

check out this thread from the past month.

there is plenty of info in this forum if you read through some of the older posts or do a search.

there should be plenty of info on rods and flies here to get you started. My personal advice would be to buy a modest foreign made rod, like a TFO or Redington. Both come with lifetime guarantees, won't break the bank, and will give you a little help when learning to cast instead of casting with "junk" rods. Junk being subjective, because more advanced fly anglers may very well classify rods like the TFO or Redington as junk compared to the ultra high modulus rods handcrafted in the USA by the likes of Sage, Winston, Scott, etc. If you are serious about the sport, by the best rod and fly line that you can afford, the reel will basically just be used to hold line, so don't get carried away. As far as flies go, just about any fly will catch bass, literally, but wooly buggers, poppers, and crawfish imitations are good patterns to start with.

good luck.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
