Re: How do you fish a wolly booger?

You've got it! I usually do well with the basic top ten flies plus a few of my own. I do get flustered sometimes when I don't have the right stuff but the bugger is one I'll try last.

Re: How do you get to the fish?

Re: First trout!!

Nice job on your first trout. It sounds like a good day! Do you live around them or did you take a vacation to go fishing?

Re: How do you fish a wolly booger?

I like this thread. Lots of good information! I find that I go through a series of retrieve styles until I get a hit. Sometimes they want long slow strips, other times they want a fast escape strip,...

Re: Ideas on wet-wading shoes?

I usually wear an older pair of wading boots. If I'm fishing rivers with flat rocks for easier wading/crossing I will wear Teva sandals. A pair of neoprene booties and wade boots is pry the best...
