Funny you mentioned that, Tightlines. First time ever I went trout fishing it was up in that area. Fishing fanatic buddy of mine at the University of Iowa was an Iowa native (unlike myself), so he knew where to go. First time I'd ever had a fish I could see rise and strike my fly. I'd fished a lot before then for other fish - both salt and fresh - but never looked back after that experience. Those were good times!
