I prefer the mile to. Just got the scenery . I swung through there and spent the night but the fishing wasn't all that great.

I am hoping to get out to treasure island this weekend

Your 'entire life', at the age of 19, amounts to a 'New York minute'. Seriously, go the the MicroSkiff Forum and look around. Google flyfishing near Charleston and you will find endless opportunities for fly fishing in the spartina salt marshes around SC. Hang out at a fly fishing shop and you will get all the advise and help you will need to get started on your saltwater fly fishing adventure. As you have probably already found out, it's a lifetime affliction and can even determine your future. I can tell, it's already too late for you…, you have already slipped over to the 'Dark Side'. Native Kayaks makes some awesome kayaks that are designed around fly fishermen.

Good luck on the Darkside,

To some 19 might be a New York minuet but to me it's a lifetime lol. I've tried learning from charleston angler guys but they don't really do fly fishing and are normally pricks. I'm gonna have to check our this forum though hopefully they can be some help. Thanks!

I've got a buddy that just moved from charleston and he didn't have te best luck trying to fish there either. Most of the guys that wanted him to go fish with them mainly went out to get drunk. When we go fish, we go to catch fish, not drink

Yeah I found that out pretty quick. If I want to do serious fishing just normally go alone even when it's just a spinner

Caught on Rapid Creek here in South Dakota. It's Rainbow spawning season! I wear a 10.5 shoe, so my largest by far on a fly rod. Picked this nice little hobby up last August.

Hey fellas,

Been a TW member for a little while, but didn't stumble across this thread until I was looking for ways to transport my fly rods with my Taco. Maybe I'll run into you guys on the water.

I spend a lot of time on the North Platte in my drift boat...more than I do on any water in Colorado. I've been known to flail the spey rod from time to time as well.

Here's a king that I stuck in Michigan last fall...

Depends on what you want out of it. Are you looking for big fish? Or are you more happy with being away from everyone and having a lake to yourself but catching smaller brookies all day? Also, what time of year?

Still Water Fishing

Streams aren't quite ready yet here in E Washington so we had to hit the lake last week-end.

I've been trying to get back into fly fishing again and my dad found this for me today


this was the reel i used when i was little. i know its not a fantastic model and its been a long time since its been used but what do i need to do to get it into a useable shape? what kind of grease or lubricant should i use and should i replace anything?

Does it move fine as is? If so I would just inspect the line and see if you need a new one.
