Hey everyone. I just registered at the site. Looks great! My name is Adam and live in Omaha, NE. Yeah, not a great place to fly fish. But in a couple months I am taking trip to the Poudre Canyon in Colorado. I will be fishing the Cache La Poudre river and a couple reservoirs. I went last year but the river was basically all rapids due to the melt of record snowfall in the mountains. So we just fished a reservoir for grayling. I had a blast. It was my first time fly fishing. So this year I am hoping the river will be better since I am going later in the summer.

Anyway, I was just looking for some help on what kind of flies and such to get. Last year I just used whatever my father in law had and am now looking to get my own gear. I already have a fly rod and reel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I live right by a Cabelas so if you shoot me a link from their website on what I should get that would be great.

Thanks!!

Welcome to the website. We do not get many grayling reports, so the next time you make a trip for them, write a report and share some pictures.

Hey Shep welcome,

Last years runoff was a booger and cut all our seasons short. But if you are coming up obviously anytime between now and fall the sort of "stock" assortment of flies that they hit on all along the front range are

Dries
Parachute Adamas (size 16 or 18)
Elk Hair Caddis (size 16)
Blue Wing Olive (16 or 18)
Hopper / Ant / Beetle pattern

Nymphs
Flashback Pheasant tail
Hares Ear
Copper John
RS2

San Juan worm


Literally after July I could carry 5 flies the rest of the year and have a blast

Adams, Caddis , BWO , RS2, Pheasant Tail

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Ever since my first time fly fishing last year I have been hooked. But living in Omaha, NE there is not much in term of fly fishing. At least I can go out so some of the smaller lakes and ponds to practice casting.

Thanks for the info comeonavs! Last year was my first at Cache la Poudre. We were there for July 4th. My in-laws said that was the fastest they had ever seen the river flow. Still had a good time up there though. Actually got to see a bear. Simply awesome seeing one of those in the wild.

Welcome there Shep. Omaha you say? Granted you may not have a large population of trout and grayling but when ya go out to practice at the small lakes and ponds tye on a top water popper. There is more to fly fishing than just trout as i'm sure you will find. Good luck on your new found passion.
