Just back from my first trip fly fishing on the lower deschutes! Man I am in the proccess of dumping everything and going to be a dedicated fly fisher! We had very poor luck but just the art of it sold me. If anyone has any free time in the Seattle area that might tutor me along I would appreciate it. My schedule is such that I have many days off in a row. Although November is going to be hectic. I could use some pointers on the basic equipment needs techniques etc... I want to be prepared by next spring to hit the streams. If there are some good fly schools in the Seattle area I would love the recommendation. This is the perfect forum for my new found love. Can't believe I waited 42 years to try it!
