    Thanks for all the advice. I'm going to give my dad the rod I got him on Christmas, but as I was looking around I found a great sale at Cabelas (with free shipping to boot) so I got myself a 9' 5wt rod a 4/5/6 wt reel. I can't wait to try it out! I just have to figure out the whole backing/line/tippet thing, because this one didn't come with anything.

    I'm also really looking forward to trying my hand at tying some flies. It seems like the sort of minute detail work that I really enjoy.

    Tying flys is a blast, and takes time to perfect the skill. Great hobby to occupy the time during the cold winter months at night in front of the fireplace, while smoking on your favorite pipe.
