Default Hello all

Hello, this is my second year fly fishing after being a spinner fisherman for all my life. I have to give my 19 yr old son credit for getting me into fly fishing and tying. Now my 16 yr old daughter has started fly fishing, but she doesn't like taking the fish off the hook so no trout fishing for her until she takes them off.

I live in Clarion County Pennsylvania, and I own Vinyl Graphics Unlimited ( sign shop ) as most people, I started with a cheap SA set up, then as I realized how much I like it I've been building my stable
First I started with a Traditions III 9' 6wt. With a cheaper Cabela's reel
Then I had a local rod builder Bill Kodrich build me a TFO Lefty 9' 5 wt. With an Orvis Clearwater reel
And last week I ordered another rod from Bill, I have him putting me together a MHX 8' 4 wt. Which will have an Orvis Battenkill Bar Stock

Hi Gary,

It's been a while since I've been to Clarion County but during my life in Pennsylvania I've been to all the counties. I would suggest schedule juggling so you have time to explore Center, Clinton, Potter, Lycoming, and Tioga counties. Although there are others with some notable fisheries those named are literally full of it.

Welcome to the forum,

Ard

Welcome to forum. Maybe it would help telling her that the Trout are clean. After all, they have been taking a bath their whole lives.

Thanks everyone, fishing with my son has been a great time, my daughter has been fun also but fishing with Tyler has just been a complete joy. And he has be very patient teaching me to cast as well as tie.

I do want to travel to do some more fishing this year, but not sure of where to go, I know we were planning on a trip to State College, but not sure where else we will make it.
