    See if you can find a women's only class. That was what I gave my mom for her birthday last year and how I eased her into the hobby. As she told me, it was much less intimidating for her since she didn't feel like there was any pressure to not screw up in front of men. That, and the class was making jokes about rods and poles the hole time...

    Nice! Did the dropper get most of the fish?

    Pretty even mix, the bigger fish took the hares ear.

    What's a good beginner combo for AZ? I was thinking a 4 or 5 weight. Maybe the Cabelas RLS+, Orvis Streamline 5, or White River Hobbs Creek.

    Thanks!

    A 9' 5 WT is a good all around rod for just about everything. If you generally fish for bigger fish on larger rivers or lakes, maybe go up to a 6.

    Nice work Chris! I sure wish I lived up in Tahoe.... or anywhere closer to the sierra. The 5-6hr drive is killing me/my wallet.

    Had my first ever Eastern Trout Grand Slam+ today...4 Rainbow, 2 Brown, and 1 Brook trout plus 5 Bluegills! And in NJ none the less! ]

    I would of thought I'd hit the slam in PA or NY where I primarily fly fish. Nothing crazy big, most in the 14-16" range, but it was great getting out there and exploring new waters.

    Man I'd sooo be down if I was up there right now. In a couple weeks I'm going to hike into the Winds to hit a certain lake for golden trout.

    Good luck & I can't wait to see some pics!

    Old man taught me how to tie flies today. This streamer is my first one:

    We're headed to the eastern sierras next week and these sorts of things work real well tubing in the lakes.

    Looking forward to tying some more and getting better.

    Staying in mammoth. Most of the spots we go are between Bishop and Bridgeport. Don't want to get too specific on a public internet forum :spy:
