Default Hi from western washington

Hi! I have been reading all I can here for a couple weeks and I thought it was time I said hello. I am very new to fly fishing and I love it. My brother showed me some basics and lent me a rod and reel to play with. I have been stumbling around and having a great time with them. I have ben having good luck, catching fish every time I go out even if it is just one or two. Mostly small streams and small rainbows. My fiance just got me a great 4 weight rod and I am hoping my allen real will arrive today. I have not been this excited about a purchase in years.

I have been learning alot from the more experienced folks here and I am looking forward to getting better at choosing flys and finding fish. That bring said, if there are any more experienced people here that would be interested I would love to go out with a real fisherman (or woman) once or twice to see what it is supposed to look like ;-) or just for some company.

Jon

Howdy from northwest england. I was born in Anacortes. Where do you live? Was over in eastern Washington(Grand Coulee) visiting my brother and late Mom last June.

Hi Jon,

I'm sorta too far away and can't guarantee that I would be able to catch as many fish as you are. By the sound of your location you are in fishing paradise and are getting off to a good start.

Welcome to the forum and....... I'm happy to hear that this place has been a learning tool for you.

Ard

Welcome, I wish we were closer and could help you out. Good advice so far. Talk to the shops and look for a club.

I know Kent well. My husband was from Renton, and I lived in the Buckley (Mt. Rainier) area for 30 some odd years. Beautiful country, but I have gotten used to the desert sun now!
