New to fly fishing and the forum
« on: July 24, 2017, 01:54:03 PM »

My name is Anthony Amenta and I'm from Vancouver, British Columbia.
I decided to get into fly fishing at the start of the year so I took the Introduction to Fly Fishing course and a Casting class at Pacific Angler in Vancouver back in April. Since then I don't think I've missed a week where I have not been out with my fly rod. Lakes have been my primary focus so far but now that I am very comfortable with my gear, I have been adventuring out into the rivers with the start of the Salmon runs.

This past weekend I decided to get out for the start of the Pink run and I was able to land my first two salmon ever! I was using a 5wt fly rod so the fight was amazing!!!

I hope to get more involved with the fly fishing communities here in British Columbia and one day, hopefully soon, enter my first competition.

Looking forward to getting to know some of you,


Todd Oishi

Welcome to the forum, Anthony!! I'm sure that you'll find this forum and the members to be very helpful.

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...
