Default New Guy from NE Nevada

Hello everyone. New guy to the forums. I live in NE Nevada, Spring Creek to be exact, at the base of the Ruby Mountains. I have been fishing since I was a little kid and fly fishing since my teenage years with my grandpa's old rods and reels. I am recently getting back into the sport. I have a basic understanding of the fly cast and fly fishing in general, but I still consider myself extremely beginner.

I mostly fish small streams and mountain lakes with some smaller rivers mixed in. I will be taking my first float trip on the Snake River, Jackson area, here in about 3 weeks. My family has a couple of houses in Bondurant, WY so I do quite a bit of fishing in that area as well.

I'm sure I will have plenty of newbie questions and maybe a little advice haha. Great site here and I plan to learn a lot from everyone here.

Welcome!!
This is a great group, just embrace the "no such thing as a bad question" philosophy.
Perhaps we'll be able to pry some photos of the pretty little streams of the Rubies out of you in the future . . . beautiful country there in your back yard.

Thanks for the welcomes guys.

Just got in from a quick little trip up to the Rubies. I meant to take some pics of the stream I was fishing and then forgot. I did however catch my first tiger trout!! I'll post some pictures and a thread in the appropriate section here in a few minutes.

Kevin: Welcome to the forum! Hopefully, we can get together for some Wyoming fly fishing when you come out in August.

Welcome Kevin! Fellow northern Nevada here. Used to live in elko, still got family there. Live north of Winnemucca now. I already commented on your other thread about the tigers but didn't realize you were a new member. Maybe we will bump into each other someday!

Good luck!
