of course! but usually for panfish. occasionally I will get a smallie or a largemouth.

fly fishing for trout is HUGE here but I don't get off on stock and take fisheries.

I prefer using the automatic reels which proves I am not a purist but I still have fun.

I used to flyfish for salmon when I was a teenager. I'm going to have to get me another rig this summer and try it again.

fly fish

Limestone streams and dry fly's is all I do in the summer. Pa has some great fly fishing. I use to teach tying for 8 years but just don't have the time anymore. But i still get out every week when the weather breaks. Got a nice tattoo of a brook trout .

For about 40 years now. Yesterday after work I was out for about an hour and a half, steelhead fishing. Water was dark/clear and I was using 4# flourocarbon tippet just to get a hit. Had 2 on, both broke off. Oh well, I always let them go anyhow. Steelhead on a flyrod are a blast!

I have always wanted to learn. My freinds are always trying to get me to go bass fishing or whatever out on the lake but it seems boring to me. Fly fishing appears to take much more skill and appears to be constant movement. What is a good way to get started without knowing anyone to teach me.

Started to get into it a few years ago and love it. Wish I had more time to spend on the river, but one needs to work and make money over R&R when the chips are down. Hopefully, this year will give me more time to learn and spend on the river. Have been on the South Fork of the Snake twice and will be on there agin come July. Would like to do the Green this year also. Have never done the Henry's but will do it one of these days.

My wife and I love the South fork in July and August, gonna start hitting the Green in about 3 weeks, best time to go there is early spring and late fall when the traffic is down.

Here we are on the South fork last Sept, cold morning but turned out to be a great day.

Average fish on Green River, spring trip.

A nice day in the ranch, Henry's Fork.

The wife always kicks my a$$, Upper Henry's.

Let's see some of your pics!

I used to flyfish a lot, before I started cutting grass.Haven't touched a rod in about 10 years. Did some charter fishing out of Henderson Harbor with some friends for a few years. Its all fun. The water is very relaxing. My helper has been bugging me to get my boat out of storage. Might just do it this year...
