    1. lol. I used to play around 10 years ago. Got up to 83 fishing just from the Karamja dock with swordfish

    2. @Hunter trouts is trout plural. So *trouts

      …unless trout is already plural.
      But you understood what I said, so the invention of language served its purpose.

    3. @RedX1000 I didn’t know that it’s a reference to a particular video game, but I knew that it was a reference to some sort of video game. The fact that you didn’t at all just cements the fact that you’re the real deal. Salt of the earth and all that good stuff. Getting started on your series. Thanks, brother.

  1. Thanks for this whole series! helped me make heads or tails out off all this before i went into the shop to buy my setup! thank you very much!

  2. Just started binge watching your series…..great info for this beginner… I’ll have the info to actually know what I’m doing now…..Thank you guys

  3. Brian, thank you so much for putting up this instructive series of videos. I literally just bought my first fly rod combo yesterday, after reviewing your videos a few months ago, and re-watching them all again last night, while taking notes! This is an absolutely invaluable series for the beginner fly fisherman. I feel like I have much more confidence in everything that I’m doing after watching these videos, and I cannot wait to get back out on the water here in the Shenandoah Valley! Thank you so much, hopefully one day I’ll make the drive to Ohio and see your shop in person!

  10. I’ve been fishing for about 30 years. Just finally bought my first fly rod last summer. Haven’t gotten the chance to use it yet besides some casting practice in my back yard. But I’ve loved watching all your videos. Everything is explained very clearly. I feel like I’m fully prepared to get started. Love the channel.

  11. Hey Brian and team. Great video series, it has been astoundingly helpful to me, a guy who just bought a fly fishing set up on a whim. I’m learning a lot and so excited to finish the series and put it all to use. Very well made, very high quality education! Thank you so much!
