I'm going to have to try the drop medthod. Because even today,, Sunday 4/12, my favorite hole had suspended and sipping trout right together. I took my experienced friend to show him where it was and HE caught all the fish! LOL It was still cool. I learned alot.

Ok, I have another newbie story, but this one is good, compared to the guy that wouldn't even talk to me the other day at Spring creek.
I went to Spruce creek today. A guy was working the bottom of a run, and I asked him if he was working his way up, so that I didn't just barge into his area. He said he was, so I wished him luck and went down to the next spot.
He was doing pretty well, and I even managed to hook a nice 12" rainbow with a Walt's worm in the first riffle I came to. I was surprised. First trout I've cought in the fast stuff like that.
I ran into him, later, up at the parking lot. We exchanged how we each did and started talking. He knew alot and found out that I knew little. LOL
Long story short,,,,, he actually GAVE me a Blue Quill, I believe it was, and heaped on some good advice. I was SHOCKED!
Anyways,,, if you are a member here, "I thank you" for your kindness.

You'll run into a lot more guys like you did on Spruce, then the one on Spring. I have found there are a lot of Guys out there willing to lend a helping hand.

I got a lot of help in the early days and have tried to help when I could, always made me feel good!

I have given, and have been given flies on spring creek. It's usually a pretty laid back place to fish, despite the occasional "crowding". Even on the super crowded streams like the tully or other SEPA streams, I have found most other fishermen to be cool.

read, alot!! find any and all books on beginning fly fishing, don't worry about any specialized techniques yet, they will come naturally as you progress. pick up a copy of "the curtis creek manifesto" great little book, good tips, fun to read, like a comic book only it really has good tips and hints, amazon probably carries it. don't get caught up in buying the latest and greatest gear, any decent quality rod and reel will do the job, better to spend the money on a quality line, which will last years if properly cared for. fly fishing marketers love to prey on new comers, don't fall for it. first and foremost, have fun, that's the bottom line. sometimes we catch fish, sometimes we don't, but it's stll fun, much better than being at work! oh yea, go to a local blue gill pond, easy to catch, good practice in setting the hook, landing the fish, etc. tons of fun also!!

Hi enfausn

You got some great advice, my advice to you is get your casting down do alot of practicing so you able to get your fly to turn over and to put your fly where you want it. Then follow up on all the other advice that was given you. Get some lessons is always a good idea.

I live in your area and would be willing to help you out, give me a PM and we'll see if we can hookup!

One of the things I enjoy about this sport is helping people just getting started. your casting got a little better as the day went on, like we talked about you have to get out in the back yard and on the stream practice. I was so glad when he landed his first trout ever, I don't know who was more excited him or me, we were both pretty dam happy. he had plenty of action, landed one had another 3 on that got off and missed some.

Next week when I pick you up I'll bring those videos with me, will see if we can do a little better next week!

I enjoyed the day!
