Anyone fly fish?

Along with my newly acquired 90, fly fishing is my hobby of choice. I'm actually a fanatic...

Anyone else?

I recently started fly fishing again (had done it as a teenager). A good friend just purchased a bed and breakfast on a salmon river on Quebec's north shore, in Rivière Pentecôte, near Sept-Iles (1000 Kms from Montreal) and I get free room and board. In exchange I help restoring the place.

Ha! It's been over the last couple of years. I have a scrapbook of pics. I'm lucky enough to have a father in law who lives on the water in south Florida, and I keep a small center console boat down there. I also live about 45 minutes from the mountains in Athens, Ga.... And there is a lot of great trout water in the area. I sell industrial packaging for a living, and have for 13 years. My customers have grown to be all over the country, so when I go see some of them, I take my fly rod.

I have a few hats... Lol

Thanks

Trout... Yes, they actually are here that size. The silver salmon came from Alaska in August. Look at this guy.. Lol. He came from a trophy stream in Clarksville, Ga called the Soque River. They are supplementary fed, hence the piggie size. Some of my fish come from rivers in North Carolina too.

Plenty of fly fishing up here in the NC mountains. One of my favorite things to do, but dont get out as much as I would like.

Heres a recent one from the Davidson River.

And a nice early season Cutthroat from Jackson Hole back in June.

Nathan,

Great fish. The Davidson is a great fishery. I was there not too long ago on the way back from a work trip. Didn't get to fish, but I stopped by to see it up by the hatchery.

Kelbo - There is some great fishing right there by the hatchery. Tons of very picky fish. Very small midges will do the trick though.

I hear #20-22 blood midge is the trick for the big browns there.

I'd like to learn to fly fish. Seems like a great way to enjoy the mountains, rivers, and the outdoors in general.

Pink caught from the beach in the salt.

Fly fishing is a great way to pass the time.

Raz,

Too sweet!

Guys, if you begin to fly fish, you more than likely will become obsessed. It fits right in with a defender, for sure!

Obsessed doesn't begin to describe it...three Winston rods, three Abel reels = $4,500 of equipment for three different types of RIVERS....then you get two Sage rods, and two Fin-Nor reels = $3,000 for two different types of salty fly fishing....then you add in waders, flies, leaders, extra spools, different lines, etc etc etc....

Shit - I could buy a Defender!!!!
