Hey..

My first flyfishing trip to SJ was awesome !

I hung around Kiddie Pool figuring things out and watching the other guys.

Since this is my first time flyfishing...I didn't how to tie on an indicator correctly...couldn't get a weight on the line. So I just fished it as it was and kept the line tight and hoped I felt the fish take my fly.

On Saturday I used a grey foam emerger with a red annelid trailing and netted 8 nice size rainbows.

Sunday was a different story. A guy in the parking lot showed me the best way to get a weight on and gave me some Orvis sticky foam indicators to use. I tried the Saturday setup and nothing. A grey foam emerger with a cream larva. Hooked 4 and netted 2. 1 snapped the tippet before I could set my drag correctly...and another just outright snapped the tippet.

I'll have to work on getting the correct weight and where to set the indicator.

All in all...it was a great trip and I'm looking forward to many more trips to the Juan.

It's that I never knew I must get it. I read I'm getting a lot more knowledge.
