Biography & ThoughtsNew to the sport, just started at the beginning of summer 08. Looking for tips and advice how to improve faster. I just caught my first "keeper", about a 9 in. Rainbow on 8/9/08. I fully intend on practicing catch and release for most catches, but I have to enjoy some of the fruits of my labor too.

As with probably most "noobs", I'm finding the fish, just not able to get them to go after my flies... or at least not the large ones. I am wide open for advice and tips, if anyone has any. Please feel free to share. As I say, I'm a "noob" right now, so I need all the advice that I can get.
