    I've grown up fishing trout and salmon in rivers and I've done some bass and pike fishing in lakes, as well as some saltwater fishing using streamers and the stripping method. However, for the most part I've fished "moving" water. What I am interested in learning is the hand-twist retrieve and various other retrieve techniques for still water fishing- I would love to be able to take advantage of the numerous trout lakes in Washington, as well as further my fly fishing education. Are there any good videos, books, etc. that I can start burying my nose in or does anybody have any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I consider Denny Richards a still water master. he has a couple of books out on still water trout tactics. I've also have seen him on Fly fish Tv on OLN talking about his retrieve methods, so I'm assuming theirs got to be a video of some sort out there. Good luck! :THUMBSUP YT
