Default Hello from DC Metro

Great forum you guys/gals have here. I've recently discovered a love for fly fishing and am fairy new to the sport. I've fished in Telluride CO (San Miguel) and near Snowbird UT (Lower Provo) while on skiing trips. I plan less golf and a lot more fly fishing this year.

Some pics from UT...

Hi Aaron, welcome to the forum.

I'm from Utah so the pics are very familiar. Were you fishing with a Guide on the trip?

The reason I ask is because the pics are of The Weber River ("The Weeb") in an area around Coalville and taken by a 3rd person. I have a couple Guide friends that fish that water a lot and am wondering if you might have been with one of them.

How was your day there?

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you will have plenty to contribute. Especially since you are from DC where some of the biggest jokes in the country work.

Yup, this is a lot more fun than golf also, particularly the way I play it.

It was guided...I can't remember the name of the guide. It was in his late 20's and owned a snowmobile tour company (tours around Snowbird) as well. He was a fantastic guy. I also remember he drove a Nissan Xterra.

Welcome to the forum and dont be afraid to get a little salty. There are some nice place to fish very close to DC and if you ever get to the eastern shore look me up.

Add my welcome and a question. Where in the DC area would you go for fly fishing?
