What hooligan said but, and keep in mind that different levels of the water column are just as important.

Did when I lived in VA. Always had good luck with a nymph dropped below a dry fly as a indicator.

Theyíre good people. Plus free beer while you shop. Hard to beat. They do get togethers for local fly fisherman at local breweries every once in a while. I think they have one coming up in a couple of weeks.

First attempt at a gurgler. Definitely needs improvement, but I think I already have down what needs to be fixed. Couple more and I should be good to go.

Iím no pro, but I would shoot for 7-8 wt gear. Sage, TFO, Ross and Reddington make some good entry stuff that wonít break the bank. I have a sage reel with very little use I would sell if you are interested pm me.

TFO rod, Wounded Warrior series 8 weight, dont get caught up in expensive reels, there are some much less expensive. Get a fly tying kit and start tying your own flies. Weight Forward floating line.

Watch youtube on how to cast.

just about anything white. I tie size 6-4 clouser like flies with craft fur that slay them. throw a little flashabou in there and they can't resist them. Also white wooly buggers do really well.

Whatís your budget (rod and reel)?

It would really depend on my. Iím a firm believer in buying the best you can afford because fly fishing isnít something you try and drop. At least for me itís an addiction and Iím constantly upgrading every piece of equipment I have. Itís almost as bad of a money pit as those duck hunting guys

I donít skimp when Iím buying reels and rods, most of my rods are built by a friend of mine. I prefer to spend more to buy a quality product.
