    I'm just getting into fly fishing and fishing rivers in general. So far, I've only had luck swinging and stripping streamers. That's more similar to the type of fishing I'm used to. If I try anything else, I get skunked.

    I've got a lot of experience trolling, be it offshore for pelagics, inshore for grouper, lakes for big bass, or internet for suckers.

    First off, welcome! You will find an abundance of information on here. I'm sure just about anyone on here would be more than willing for to help. Offer to buy someone a lunch in exchange for some tricks of the trade with nymphing will be hard to pass up for most folks Anything else in general, just ask my friend.

      Happy New Year and welcome to NGTO. Agreed on the Nymphing I definitely catch more fish that way. Maybe sometimes a dry dropper as well. Have fun see you on the riva.

          I'll bring a cooler full of liquid lunch with me next time to exchange. Does anyone like Christmas beers? I'm not going to drink the ones I've got and don't want them to skunk in my fridge.

              Woowee, boy. A little less than a year ago I gave this whole fly fishing thing a try. I've had 40 fish days on the hooch while other folks got skunked, explored some of the most remote wilderness in GA catching wild and native trout by the buttload, caught cutthroat trout in alpine lakes in Montana. I'm basically the best there ever was at this and I've only been doing it a year. Oh, and I took 6 strokes off my golf game so I've got that going for me.

                That's what I'd call a good year!

                  Yeah, a good year for sure! Except for that golf crap. That's a 5% reduction!
