Check out your local fly shop, they'll be able to set you up with everything you need and give you info about your area. Most offer tying and casting classes and can give you plenty of tips for free. Also, searching through old threads in this forum can also give you some ideas, a lot of good topics for beginners have been discussed over the years.

Be careful, you may find yourself with a new addiction grin.gif

I agree with Kent, go to your local flyshop and talk to them. If you live in Lino Lakes, you can either go down to Thorne Bros/Fly Angler, or Bob Mitchell Fly Shop in Lake Elmo. Thorne Bros is a sponsor on here. Both shops have very trustworthy staff who would love to help you out.

When I first got "hooked" on fly fishing I too used an "old, old rod". I thought it wouldn't make a difference, but once I clubbed up to a new set-up, the difference was amazing. If you decide to use the old set-up, my suggestion would be to at least change the line. It will help your casting and if you decide (for some strange reason) that you don't like it, you wont be out a ton of money.

The one thing I would like to throw in here is; Don't try to go to fast. Take your time. Read about fly fishing. learn as much as you can this winter and pick up some of the gear you need. I think I can speak for alot of fly fishermen out there when I say, This is when you start getting ready for next year. Dust off the fly tying vice and see what you lost last year.

Fly fishing is being able to go slow, see what is going on around you, then getting a line wet. You can say it is a Zen thing but a lot more awesome. smile.gif

The point is don't be in a hurry to learn it all becase even the old timers are still working on that.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
