I've been fly fishing for 10 years and love it. Wish I had started earlier. I recommend a lesson. It will take months if not years off the learning curve. I tell people it is like going out and trying to play golf without a single lesson. Kinda tough and may frustrate you to the point you won't do it again. Sure you can learn on your own or have a friend teach you but learning from a professional will make it more enjoyable. I learned by simply taking a guided fishing trip and telling them I needed to learn the basics. After one trip of catching fish and learning from the guide I went out the next weekend by myself and caught fish. Good luck and welcome to another addiction.
