Newbie in West Michigan
I've been lurking around the forum for a few weeks, soaking up all of the information here so I thought it was time I said hello. I'm a new fly fisher, started at the end of April and have since become completely addicted (thankfully I live 10 minutes away from the river so I've been fishing almost every day). I caught my first sizable fish the other day, a 17 1/2" brown trout on a dry fly, which was incredibly exciting on my 3wt. rod. I'm still trying to figure out how to load everything onto my motorcycle, along with camping gear and clothes, so I can combine two of my passions. I'll be heading out to Washington/Oregon from Michigan for 3 weeks on the bike in September so I'll likely be picking all of your brains on fishing through the mountain states/Pac NW.
