: Newbie - Need any and all suggestions

05-24-2006, 06:41 PM
I have been wanting to get into fly fishing ever since I went to Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma a few years ago. I caught about 12 trout on a light-weight spinning reel. I bought a rod and reel last year and used it in Co while on vacation. Hired a guide for a half day trip and actually caught a rainbow. About 2 1/2 lbs (guessing). I learn a little from him but I didn't practic much. And didn't fish any at all.(Spend too much time a the golf course).

Well went back to Beavers Bend a few weeks ago and caught small rainbow. Most of my fishing that weekend was just casting. Not really worried about catching anything. Just wanted to work on my casting.

Well headed back to CO this summer and back to Beavers Bend too. Plan on fishings at least 2 days at both places. Now I want to get some waders/shoes and a vest. Plus all the other little stuff that I will need.

So could you guys suggest some beginners waders/shoes and vest. Plus all the other stuff that you would suggest for like a "starter pack"

Thanks in advance and looking forward to learning from you guys!
