  • Glad to be here

    Just joined today. Got a new fly fishing rig in July and just started fly fishing. Have a 9ft 6 weight. Caught a few blue gill and warmouth but no trout yet. Supposed to go to Tallulah River this weekend. Looking forward to learning a lot on here from all the vets.

    Thanks

    Jonathan

            you have one to the best trout rivers in the country almost in your back yard. the Hooch below the dam. pick up one of those river keepers maps. now you have to learn about water release, safe wading and wearing a PFD.

                yes I want to try the Hooch out. I was reading where Bowman's Island is a pretty good spot. I saw a PDF online with pockets that I might get to put my gear in.

                From watching video's on the Hooch you do not know if you catch a small trout a few inches our a big brown. Heard Woolly Boogers are good for the larger trout.

                  The Tallulah River had plenty of stockers still swimming around last weekend. We didn't take any home so I'm sure you'll find plenty more this weekend.

                  Use an orange glo bug and you'll do well.

                    Welcome TH18, you're headed in the right direction. Work slow, move slower. If you can see the fish, more than likely they have already seen you. A wooly booger is a good starting fly. There's no wrong way to fish it. Cast it upstream and let it drift back.Cast downstream and strip it back in. Cast across stream, let it drift, let it hang in the current before you strip it back in. Strip line off your reel and let the booger slow drift downstream, letting it hang in the current as you do. The only wrong way is to keep it out of the water.

                    And you never know...that bump maybe a "SNIT" (standard nine inch trout), or it may be an 18 inch brown with an attitude.

                      That is nice to know. Did not know you can fish a Wooly Booger is so many ways. Hope to catch a few stockers and browns tomorrow.
