  1. I have been tying flies for my 2nd year now more exclusively. As of this moment, I feel I am more of a tyer than a fly fisherman. Been out twice only fly fishing. In the past, I would tie about 20 some flies for the whitebass run and walleyes in Spring in WI and MN, but these flies are fished with a spinning setup. Being a member of several Facebook groups and meeting people on the river and stores, I always ask the following questions when others share of their catch: What size was the fly? What color was the fly? Was it weighted? Typically, when people post pictures of their catch or their fly, if it sparks my interest, I am usually the first to prompt those questions being that I am still learning. I do not see many asking those questions, hence am I rude or without manners when I ask those questions? I consider myself a largemouth bass fisherman as well. It is somewhat of a taboo to even inquire about the lure and especially the lake or location on the lake where the monster bass was pulled from. I understand this "rule" and always wonder it, but know it is not too polite to ask especially how every lake and body of water seems to be a secret lake. Another reason why I ask the questions is, I have not done enough scouting the water for insects to know what the insects look like besides what I see online of real pics and flies made to mimic it. For example: I finally found my first caddis larvae last weekend when I caught my first brown trout. The caddis was brown and a size 24. Doing a typical google search, most caddis's are green and usually tied on hooks 12-16. With this knowledge now, I feel like I wasted time and money tying green caddis flies in size 16 when the real one sample that I found can be better matched at size 20-22. Considering all of this so far...is it rude or impolite for me to ask those questions? Just want to know if there is an unspoken boundary.
