So what kind of fishing have you done or do? <p>What is the biggest fish you have caught and what kind?<p>I have done some salt water fishing on piers in Fla. and some fresh water fishing (lakes, rivers) I like fishing as long as I don't have to touch the bait or fish. I would love to try deep salt water fishing but haven't yet. I caught a huge sting ray once but anything else is hardly worth mentioning <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> I was watching the fishing channel on TV and this woman caught a 9ft marlin<p>Does anyone fly fish?<p>

Re: Fishing (stephanie)

I prefer deep sea, but don't get to go out as often as I would like. When I retire, I will be close to the water, and have a cabin cruiser worthy of taking out for some fishing excursions with friends.<p>Trolling for Bluefish is a lot of fun also.

Re: Fishing (greek2us)

I would think flyfishing would be very difficult. If you don't mind me asking how long it took for you to learn flyfishing?

PHISHING............................listening to a CA jamband's music or "to phish"....to follow the Phish band from concert to concert venue, collecting any and all momentos and consuming large quantities of liquid refreshments and other mind altering items...all in an effort to bring back the "peace and love" of the 60's.<p>FAR OUT MAN!

Re: Fishing (stephanie)

stephanie..<p>there is a large movement nationwide of women promoting fly fishing for women....<p>In Alaska there are numerous organizations, classes, lodges, and guide services set up to cater exclusively to women new to the sport.<p>Here's a place to start with many links to women's oriented offers right in Charleston and elsewhere:<p><A HREF="http://www.onflyfishing.com/Womens_Sites" TARGET="_blank">http://www.onflyfishing.com/Womens_Sites</A>/<p>___________________________________<p>Casting is not at all beyond most peoples grasp. It's a matter of learning a few basics that may not seem intuitive, so it takes some little practice and discipline. Other than the basic techniques, the most important aspect I have found is having a properly balanced and matched combination of tackle.<p>Matching the different rod actions and line weights to a particular style of casting is a bit confusing, and can be daunting at first. <p>But when the combination is right, you will feel the difference and casting with plenty of panache will be so much easier than if you have the wrong set up.<p>That's why the classes and groups are so valuable, it will give you the chance to try some different combinations before buying a not quite matched combo.<p>Don't be put off by the elitist pricing in some fly shops.... snobs abound in the fly fishing community. A very good set up can be purchased from Cabella's or some other large sporting goods stores for not a lot of money.<p>Investing in higher class gear should wait until you feel you need it. it's not a requirement for enjoying the sport.<p>Don't kill anything you don't eat.......<p>
