First Time Fly Fisher

Alright guys I love fishing, and Live in MA and love stripers too. I bought a fly rod because I heard it is addictive and great for catching stripers. Only problem is I aint catching nothing. Is it the flies im using maybe? Or my technique? I have an 8wt. rod.
Please any info is appreciated.

Jim

Unhappy

Im right near salem. You guys know any good areas to work the fly rod around here? Plus I dont know what I should be using for flies. And I think my casting is a bit off and I may be forming bad habits.

Jim,

No personal knowledge of that area but if I were you I would visit your local fly shop. I have heard great things about the guys at First Light in Rowley.

Shop in Beverly

Jim-sent you a private message about a nice shop in Beverly I've been to before- very helpful folks there when I went. Grew up on the North Shore; now live on the Cape. Fair number of regulars on this board who live and fish the North Shore area, so wouldn't hurt to post dates/places you're planning to fish to see if anyone from the Forum would be willing to hook up with you. Being a relative newbie myself, I can say in all honesty that the folks I've encountered through this Forum have been responsible for the majority of my salt water fly fishing knowledge. They're a great group.
