Re: What am i doing wrong
I got lucky my 1st couple of fly fishing trips, fish were gobbling grass hoppers and I accidentaly caught trout not knowing what I was doing. I then fished for a long time getting my butt kicked, lucky for me I live in MT and there are a lot of dumb fish to help with learning curves.
If you can try to fish with someone who is willing to teach you the areas that are productive along with the techniques. every where you go there are different techiniques that work regionally. If you get a chance come out here and I could teach you some nymphing setups that work worldwide, and have some fun doing it, but with that might not being an option, go to a local flyfishing shop and ask what and how to fish, depth, reading water, whats hatching, what temperature to fish, there are a lot of things to know but hopefully local knowledge can help you, it will get fun once you start picking up the small things and havign some success
