Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Been a bit of a lurker here ever since I began fly fishing/tying a few years ago. Anyways, I figured it was about time I joined the fun, so here I am!

I began spin fishing with my grandfather as soon as I could hold a rod, and fishing has stuck with me as my one true love ever since. A few years ago I chose to try out fly fishing when I stumbled across my grandfather's noodly old glass rod with a cracked line and jammed reel (which he never learned how to properly use). I was instantly hooked and I got myself some more modern gear. Fly tying simply came naturally after that, since the trees behind me were always more hungry than the fish.

I normally fish warmwater for bluegill, bass, and pike because that is what is closest to home. However, since I have turned 18 and my parents are now ok with me going on long drives by myself, I have begun exploring coldwater fishing, and I caught my first ever trout (quite by accident after spooking many fish) in the driftless of northeast Iowa. I simply can't get enough of the quiet valleys, pristine spring creeks, and beautiful wild fish.

Tight lines,

Justin

Thanks Mike. I'm not too great at taking pictures yet, but I certainly try and I'm slowly getting better. Next time I take a trip I will be sure to post some pictures.
