During the times that I am out on on the water I find myself wondering if there are really any fish where I am standing, and spend a lot of time moving to different spots where I think there might be fish. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions as to what type of spots I should be targeting?

    I just brought the "Finding a big brown trout" thread back to the board. The posts to it might be of some help to you.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

Back then some of us were pointing at the other guy saying, how does he do it. Now I know that he learned it somewhere.
    Dave Hughes is one of my all time favorite fly fishing authors. I own this book also and think it is an excellent resource.
