Are you planning to fish the lake or Piru Creek? Is the shop in Sherman Oaks Fisherman's Spot?

I'd say Marriott's selection of fly tying material, float tubes, waders and wading supplies, and selection of flies is still how I remember it 20 years ago. But back then, I remember a lot more rods and reels, and their library of books related anything fly fishing was unbelievable. I guess Amazon has taken its toll. IMO its still a great fly shop. Spend quite a bit of time there attending their educational seminars.

Yes, their library was small, but I think that's the case for even the library owned by LAC.

Yes, Fisherman's spot.

Piru creek, I believe. I'm not sure how to fly fish lakes. Don't have sinking lines yet. SLOWLY going to increase my arsenal!

If anyone wants to do a meet and greet fishing day, I'm down most weekend days. Especially now, when the water is cool, but the days are warm.

Is there a way to do instant chats with the people that are online?

I am in SoCal, I would suggest East and West fork. Also the Kern river is great. Piru is ok if you want to hike a few miles. I prefer east/west. I would also suggest a few creeks in the San Bernadino mountains. You are also only 3-4 hours away from Lower Owens. Good luck

Thanks rasputinj, I have read about the east and west...hiking a few miles does worry me, as I am a lazy one...

3-4 miles is a bit far for me to go by myself so I'll stick closer...

I'll have to look into the SB mountains, since this is a first I've heard of it.

Looks like I might have a few places to check out tomorrow...i need to feed this bug I'm having, by tossing a few bugs that I have, to feed the bugs to the fish!
