but learn to enjoy fly fishing for many reasons, not just the fish. A day on the water will start to become a reward in and of itself.


Take these words to heart. I never fished in my life and picked up a fly rod for the first time last April. It was (and continues) to be frustrating fishing for trout and excluding my 1st I caught by 'accident ' with Volks last April ..... I went all the way until late fall/ early winter until I caught another .. tho I had great success with WW.

Unfortunately I do not have the time to fish as much and hone my skills to where I would like them to be so ... each and every time I'm on a stream I make sure to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of being outdoors on the h2o.

try more weight to get on the bottom, at least this way you can catch suckers.


Your starting to get it. Like I said before. I look good and catch fish.

Stagger - Great statement and a sentiment for all of us to remember!

It's great to be out and catch fish, but we shouldn't get so wrapped up in "catching" that it spoils the enjoyment of being on the water.

Catching trout does not ruin my experience on the water.

Nor mine!

But I try not to let the "Not" catching get to me. Especially since I am so good at the not catching part.....

If your just going to catch, the most, or the biggest. Your missing the point.

I Never get "Skunked" I just call it "Practice" (it keeps me focused better when I look at things as a puzzle instead of a problem.) Just yesterday I practiced for around 3 1/2 hours - had one hit on the brown wooly bugger and he/she let it go before I could set the hook.

keep at it. I went out my first couple times and had no luck. But as i would fish it seemed like every time someone that walked by gave me some pointers and helped out. talked to one guy and he showed me a double fly set up and even gave me some split shots and after that day i was catching fish left and right. don't be afraid to ask people for help Good luck and keep us posted

If your not catching trout this time of the year and it is really getting to you, maybe you visit the supermarket....Buy one of them there on ice - put a hook in it's mouth and take some photos.....Who would know the difference!!!
