So today is my 21st birthday and my parents got me flyfishing stuff! I told them I wanted to learn how to flyfish and my dad has done it all his live out in the NW! However, I live in Illinois and have never seen anybody flyfish there? I thought flyfishing was mainly done in moving creeks/ streams/ rivers! I only know of lakes in Illinois that are dirty! Anyone know how to flyfish into lakes with dirty water or some good places to go in IL to flyfish? Like I said, I am new to flyfishing and am eager to learn so any info would be great! PS... I also got 20 rounds of Hornady 40SW ammo, and 100 rounds of Blazer 40SW! Had a great birthday today and will be throwin a few beers back with the old man and older brother tonight!
