    Default Hurricane rod

    I picked up a 3wt Hurricane rod from eBay. It is a four piece from the 70s I think....13$. I'm a noob with fly fishing, but I'm digging this rod....it loads up and shoots out like a laser for me...my technique is far from great, but I'm getting better...I lost a fly to a tree on my back cast today....I'm slowly working through the starter box of flies that came with my starter Shakespeare rod...I will have to explain to the wife why I need to get a tying kit soon�� Honey, all the flies that catch fish are gone...and I don't want to buy an existing kit and have more flies that I can't use...so I have to tie my own...I hit a community pond this afternoon....it had larger bluegill than I have been catching...good times...they were hitting hard and fast...large enough to fillet if I trusted the water in there...

    YEP! You are hooked...It's just like "Drugs" except this won't kill you...unless the wife finds out how much tying equipment you have purchased! Welcome to the club, Speaking of Club, Free State Fly Fishes of Maryland meets the first Wednesday of the month and has free Fly Ting Class n the first Saturday of the month. I'll get the address and post it for you.

    Formal meetings with guest speakers start in September.

    I will be the guest speaker in January summarizing some of our 2017 FSFF outings.

    Fly tying on Saturdays is pretty much a year round activity. However, there are some occasional breaks.

    Check website for details. http://fs-ff.com/index.php/events/
