It's been awhile since I've had the opportunity to be on Troutnut, or even fly fish... the price to pay to be in the U.S. ARMY

So I graduated as 11C Infantry and I'm going to Korea in January, which gives me 28 days to fly fish here in New York.

I live 1.5 hours from the Salmon River, where I hear there's some pretty good winter steelheading. If anyone has had any experience or info on Winter Steelheading, esp. in the Salmon River I'd like any and all tips you can give me b/c I'm a complete newbie! Thanks!

Hi FisherofMen,

It's great to see you back on here for a while. I was just wondering the other day where you have been.
I'm sorry that I don't have any help for you. I just want to say best wishes to you, your fly fishing, and your deployment.

Thanks, Sam

But not to worry, I think I'm actually going to stop resisting the cold, lay the fly rod to rest... and pick up the ol' scattergun to track down some birds this time around :)

Hmm... I wonder what kind of flyfishing there is in South Korea. I did a little research and they have some native "Cherry trout" at least.

We'll see!

If the weather stays warm, you might want to put in a day on the river. December is the month when steelies are apt to make a big showing. Fish an active fly and start casting before you get in the water. They lay right along shorelines as well as "out in the middle".
