Long time lurker, but lately have felt the urge to meet others have a love for fly tying and fly fishing.  I love fishing for trout and truly love getting away from the masses.  Lately I've really gotten into hiking into high mountain lakes chasing cutthroats.  The color from the fishing is just amazing and so worth the reward.

Awesome!  I used to hike up to a lake called Ptarmigan Lake in Colorado.  Close to Buena Vista.  It had greenback cut throats. I loved it. It's been over ten years since I've been back.  You got me thinking it's time to go back.   


Love the pictures.  The little bull brookie is killer.  My favorite all time trout to look at. This is a little brookie I caught around 20 years ago.   I use this for my screensaver..

Welcome to the site, BigRed.

Here, in Florida, we don't have trout.  But there's plenty of fish in almost every body of water.

Nice pics. Welcome to the forum.
