fly fishing

Going to the upper Trinity River, above Trinity Lake, in Trinity County, CA Thursday early a.m. Thee are 2 USFS campgrounds which I have never explored. I will check them out. Have some new flies to try. Last time I was by that river it looked beautiful. Should be some trout in there somewhere. I'll let you know when I get back what I find. Scamp and Skippy and I are planning on having a good time for a couple of days. Marg in NW California

Trinity River

Marg, I've fished the Trinity River near Lewiston, below the Hatchery, and caught trout and steelhead. It's also a great place for salmon, when in season. Barb-less hooks only. Good luck on your adventures and exploring. Steve & Terri

Hi Marg,
I assume, by your name, that you are female. I'd like to know how you learned to fly fish since most fly fishers are male. It looks like a beautiful and relaxing sport that I (a female) might like to learn too. Some people have told me that free lessons are offered through the fly-fishing club in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco (near to where I live). I'll have to check them out.
If you don't already know, there is a group of women nationwide who belong to a club, Sisters on the Fly. They started as a group of fly-fishing women who loved to travel in their vintage trailers which they paint and decorate with whimsical themes.
I look forward to hearing back from you.

Fly fishing

Hi all, I was married to a fly fisherman and he more or less taught me. I have received many comments on being a woman fly fisher plus being a left-handed fly fisher. Some think that is really a kick, I don't see the humor, after all I am left handed. I have tied many flies, it is a good hobby, especially during the winter when we are all house-bound. You can learn a lot just by watching and trying. It is not a hard sport to learn and it is fun to try a fly that you think looks delicious but the fish turn their noses up at it. Oh well, fish are very particular. I am not a purist, I don't wade, I roll cast if l don't have a clear back-space. It's fun. I'll try the river tomorrow and Friday and let you know what I find. Forgot to tell you all that I am past eighty and on the go most of the time with Scamp, Skippy and Me. Marg in NW California/

All my sisters fish.

When I was growing up, the only way we fished was fly fishing. I have 4 sisters and a mother that are avid fly fishers. I found out if you weren't catching fish hand a rod to one of my sisters. We usually fished the high lakes in Oregon for brook trout. Photo of some rainy lake brookies.
