Hey guys! Thanks again for all your help! Im reading and learning as much as possible. And your advice is like gold to me, I take it to the heart.
Dan, your are correct on the location. It is Tippy Dam, there was a pretty light crowd that day so fishing was pretty easygoing and there were no confrontations lol.
I'm pleased to know that I was in the right spot and that I was using the right gear and yes I was using a streamer. Definitely looking into a Fly Fishing Club/Chapter. And Ray at the fly shop is a very knowledgeable man. He helps me out when I go into his shop, super kind and always gives me a forward answer.
Fly Fisher for Men, so should I use any weight at all? I was using 2-3 1oz split shot weights. I didn't even try to use a fly cast, instead I just over handed it, but it didn't go very far.
peregrines, I was using sink tip line along with those split shot. Is it still considered fly fishing with using weight like that? Or is it cheating? I guess what I should ask is am i doing things right? Like using sink tip line and split shot in fast moving water like that. Or is there a right way? Using floating fly line a with just a leader and a fly?
My apologies if there is some confusion.
Thanks again for everybody's help.
Im bound to figure out and make corrections.
