    Welcome! Most on this forum are "willing to talk", you just have to ask a specific question! I've been around for a couple of months now, and I can't begin to tell you how much I've learned here, so ask away!!!!

    haha thanks yeah thats good idk i guess i live in an area where fly fishing is entirely diferent then traditaional trout fly, im from wisconsin and nortchentral area. Yeah im from Merrill, WI and 15 minutes north we have the famous Prairie River accept they just shocked the water and found 3+ 40inch plus muskies so you can imagine what happend to the trout population. So the majority of fishing i have done is on lakes for blue gill, crappie, perch etc. Having never really paid much attention to river structure accept downed trees vegatation and rockpiles/drop offs. So i guess river reading i have no knowledge of and would like to become familiar with that before my trip to wyoming haha. and if anyone have a good say in st.croix avid vs. greys xf2 streamlight theyd both be four weights over 9 feet and used for nymphing...
