Photo of the Day: A Spin Fisherman Turns to the Fly

Curtis Luster already looks the part, though he’s been fly fishing only a few months.

Curtis Luster began shopping our store shortly after we opened. Though he was a big spin fisherman, Curtis knew little about fly fishing. He participated in a Fly Tying 101 class during the winter and signed up for our first sessions of Fly Fishing 101 and 201. Needless to say, he is hooked. Here’s a nice Lake Ontario smallmouth he caught while swinging flies on Sandy Creek last month.

  1. Always good to see a convert! I think switching over from spin fishing definitely cuts the learning curve a little as compared to having no prior experience fishing.

  2. Love it! The more people we have participating in fly rodding the better for the sport IMO.., Nice bass too!
