I've been into fly fishing now for about 3 or 4 months and seem to be doing quiet well. It's a great sport, however, about once or twice a trip, I'm interrupted by little critters biting the end of my line. It really destroys my rhythm (know what I mean?). Well, from reading the mail here, it seems I'm doing a lot better than most of you. You gals and guys seem to be interrupted a good deal more often than me. I must be gifted.

So, I thought I'd offer what help I could by describing my habits. I usually fish Island Ford with weighted nymphs (gold ribbed hare's ear (GRHE), pheasant tail, bead head GRHE), wooly buggers (black, olive, some with flashabou). I twitch the wooly's and float the nymphs at current speed by mending. I fish current edges and any area where current is interrupted. I usually fish a spot for 15 minutes or longer before wading on.

Hope this helps! Oh, listen, I could be mistaken about all this, so feel free to give me your opinions, advice, etc. Maybe fishing with some of you folk would help you. Can't ever tell.
