Had a lot of fun and didn't get outfished by my girlfriend so that's a plus. Thanks to Ed and George for putting it together and to Old Lefty for the awesome casting lesson.

Before this thread fades away to obscurity, I'd just like to give credit where credit is due.

Foxgap239 did 99.9% of the setup work for this event - Delta Dog and I just backed him up.

Fox did an exceptional job of organizing this, and stayed on top of it the whole way. He put the interests of the attendees above his own - he only fished for a very brief time in the early morning, then put his gear away to make sure the attendees were cared for as they arrived.

Nice job, Fox!

Thanks so much for a great day of fishin', fellowship and food. Fox did an outstanding job with help from HA and Dd. Fox wasn't the only one to get out of the fishin' garb and into work mode. I was just ready to head to the water when I noticed that HA had put away the waders. When I asked him why he wasn't fishing he responded "that's not why I'm here, I have other duties toady."

Kudos to all who participated in making the event a success!

This pretty much summed up George's fishing on Saturday.

No.....we don't. Troutpoop and I were traumatized for life when Fox ran through camp in them. He needs to buy a bathrobe ASAP.


Stagger - the "benchmark" for the end of the tricos is the first heavy frost. Sometimes as late as November. Hard to say, but typically they're done in October.

The spinnerfall gets later and later as things cool down. I've seen it happen in the afternoon late in the hatch.

Sorry it took me so long to follow up. Had a great time, learned some good info, and everyone was very welcoming.

Lefty, I can't tell you how much I appreciate your patience in teaching me. I know my casting was akin to a caveman attempting to figure out how to operate a motorcycle, and you were incredibly helpful. Thanks!

DJS, thanks again for the ride, and for loaning me your rod for the day. It was much appreciated. Sorry I left my stuff behind and we had to go back.

Kathy, it's great to finally have a fishing buddy! Thank you so much for setting up a fly box for me, can't wait to see it! Sorry our last attempt at a fishing trip was foiled, next time will be better.

My buddy gave me a fly rod and a few flies, so I can actually go by myself now. It is by no means a nice rod, I looked it up and it is like the cheapest model on the market, but it does work. Not much to look at and not great quality, but it was free and gets the job done, so I'm not complaining. It is 8' 6" and is a 5/6 weigt. I believe the line on it is a 5. It is a Cortland Silver Stream. From the research I've done, it is very cheap, but most say it is actually not bad for what it is... an entry-level rod. The reel, from what I hear, is complete crap. It's been working just fine as far as I can tell, but then again, I know next to nothing about fly reels. It is also a Cortland, but it doesn't have anything but the brand name printed on it, so I don't know anything else about it. The friend that gave it to me said it was a very low-quality reel.

I have yet to successfully land, or even hook, a fish on a fly rod, but I will keep at it!

Sean, we'll try to get some fishing in this weekend.

Cheap doesn't always mean bad. Cortland knows how to make fly equipment although I don't know why they put their name on some of the cheapest stuff.

Sometimes just using a better fly line helps.

In the meantime, check out some you tube videos for tips. One in particular that might be helpful is Fly Fishing Made Easy

Glad I was able to help you out. Just remember to pay it forward in the future.

See you on the water some time.
