RYB,

Your season is a little ahead of ours. Tell us about your fishing gear. Can you buy Russian made rods and reels or do they come from outside your country? What lines are you using. I have talked to fly fishers from all over the world but you are the first Russian.

Frank

Well, it's not only bears and frosts
As everywhere we can have only few manufacturers of, let me say, vintage(but sooner or later...)tackles from US or Europe. So a russian company followed some former Big Boys and makes an OEM-projects rods. Their designer is a great flyfisher and a good man- Andrey Sokolov. Many russians like these rods. But as for me I use other rods and reels. But this time I'm fond of my STICK-it's my own custom build rod that features xtra-mega-super fast action #4", 7,6". It was made for trout creeks with skagit line. But it works good for walleye too where long distance, big/bulky flies and heavy strike are the must. The line is also custom made- it's total length (no leader) is 10 feet, and the leader may vary from 8" to 12". Flies, as you can guess, are mine but inspired by Ed Ward's Intruder.
I think that is all...

Hello Steve and JayMor, my name is george and i am a new member to this forum. It will be good to be able to relate to other fly fishng folks who love the great outdoor & the gift of fly fishing like i do. Some history on my self, I hale from southern california but now live in Whitehouse Tx. I love the big sky country like the HighSerrias and the Rockys, to me that is the only way to really enjoy the fly fishing expiereance. Most of my fly fishing expierance i taught my self,i also love to tie flys and also taught my self by reading books and watching videos. At this time i am preseantly attending your basic fly fishing class Steve at TJC and i am really enjoying it to the max. Well i am still learning how to use this forum but getting it fast. I enjoy searching for information on the other threads and promise to try and share info with other fly fishing Fanatics. ( Good Fishing Forum Member George!)

Hello Frank, Thank you for your welcome. I hope that i am useing this thread properly i am not good on the computer, trying to learn how to follow the promp`s. As for your question on where i fished in the Seirras mostley the eastern side,Bishop was my favorit_ up aroud bishop creek, lake sabrina,south lake,northlake. I also did some on the owens river and lake crawley.Lake crawley is better know as the jewal of the seirras. I use to also go hunting with my Dad and friends in Kizers pass which is on the western side of the seirras,so was able to fish the san juaqen river a few times. The seirras are a beutifull moutaine range and although i never fly fished at that time (wished i had) mostly conventional spin cast fishing. It was not untill i moved to Tx that i became interested in fly fishing. Well i think that i have talked enough for now better save some for later!!! Thanks again, George

Hi George,

Too bad you were not fly fishing at that time. The high Sierras are a great spot for fly fishing.

I was born and raised in Fresno and spent a lot of time on the Western slope. We have a lot of people on the forum from Texas.

Frank
