We are heading for Big Sky Montana Saturday morning for a week. Anybody ever trout fish out there? I am getting a guide for 1 day on Tuesday. I'm taking a float down some river and I'm going to fly fishing. I asked the guy if he minded if I brought my ultra light with me and he just laughed and said they used to getting people that never fish. He said I should be able to catch on to the fly fishing thing no problem. I've never done it before, so I really don't know what to expect. Hopefully I will get some good pictures for the website. I'm sure at a minimum I will be able to get a picture of the rats nest I get in my fly rod!
You should start practicing right now with a friends fly rod. I went to wyoming for spring break to go fly fishing. i had never fly fished before. but i practiced in my yard and i figured it out. once you know how to do it, its a piece of cake! good luck p.s. you have to be very very patient!
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
