Good evening all NEW guy here who grew up in the Catskill MTNS of NY and moved to WV a few years ago. Have had a blast learning new water and meeting new people and sharing the great NY tradition of fly fishing.

Nice fishies! Welcome to the Forum. Lots of friendly fisherman with lots of advice here. BTW I've seen those "Golden" trout and it makes you wonder how they don't get picked off by herons and eagles!

Tight lines!


P.S. Do they stock tigers in your waters? A guy here in MI just caught and released a natural one - extremely rare!
No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Thank you for the warm welcome, I totally agree on the golden standing out for all of mother natures fish predators, humans included. I have found them to be very frustrating to catch as they are very timid and skittish, WV stocks one golden for every 10 rainbows so I use the golden just to lead me to the bows. I have had my best success in discolored water with of all things mop flies, usually green or yellow. Yes WV does stock a limited number of tigers. I have only caught one (and released) in the 9 years I have been here but it was a beautiful fish with tons of fight.
