Spinner, by all means listen to them, but realize that like other fishermen, like myself, in fact, they're all liars. Proud, unashamed liars, I might add. In a fishing story, the truth might be occasionally scratched, but done no damage.
Good luck on your new foray into flyfishing. Just don't expect miracles, and try not to get frustrated with getting hung up in bushes, etc. Remember, a spinner is much easier to use, so no one chooses to flyfish because it's easier. Remember also, if you can't catch it on a spinning rod, you probably can't catch it on a flyrod. Which means, you CAN catch it on either; it's just a matter of tactics.
Trout in the size you described love minnows and crawfish. And big browns love to feed at night. That's how they god to be big browns.
