Hello all, how would I get started in inshore fly fishing? I've always been intrigued by it. No clue as to how to cast or anything. How much room do you actually need to cast a fly? What kind of flys to use? Any rod and reel suggestions? The spot i would like to go to has maybe 5 feet of playroom behind me, doubt that's enough room, maybe 10-15 feet with waders. Any insight or tips at all would be great.

I've yet to hit the salt with the long rod but I hope it may be coming soon. I'd suggest getting with someone that knows what they're doing and gain some instruction there. Visit some local fly shops. I'll say it again: Hands on instruction is second to none if you're new at something.

There are plenty of options. In additon to those mentioned (M & G; fly shops etc) there are classes at the Pechmann Center (discussed previously on this forum); classes and demos at the upcoming Fly Fishing Show in Winston Feb. 6 & 7; the fly fishing show in April in Wayensboro, VA, guided trips with folks that specialize in fly fishing, and reading older threads here. A little time ( and maybe $) with a knowledgeable instructor can save you a lot of time, energy and $ in the long run. So much is explained on instructional web sites and you tube videos....but that take time and it's hard to beat the efficiency of one-on-one coaching.

Learning the roll cast (and it's variations) is just what you need for casting in "tight" spaces

A roll cast would be the ticket for where you want to fish. I am not very good at that myself, but there are some fly fishers that are, and like wademaster suggested, a professional at a fly shop would be a great way to learn. If you're located near Statesville, I would suggest Carolina Mountain Sports.
Hope you can make it to the Kinston M&G.
