Hey guys, went out for the first time this year with my brother-in-law, Matt. He's never fished in his life, so it was a little difficult for him but he got used to his spinning gear pretty quick.

I was using the fly rod, and didn't even see sign of a single fish - except for the half-eaten (bear) fish I saw. It was huge, probably 22-26 inches if the bottom half was still intact. I think it was one of those "kopi?" orange carp you see in Chinese restaurants.

It was 34 degrees, snow/raining, and no fish. But still great fun!

Going out with a buddy tomorrow, he's a very accomplished fisherman, but never used his fly rod. Tomorrow will be day #1 for him!
