Hello Everybody, I'm going flyfishing for the first time on Thursday morning! My grandfather passed away a few weeks ago, and one of the things he left me was one of his rods. It's not exactly cutting edge technology (25 year old fiberglass), but I think it would be kind of cool to learn on one of his rods regardless. So I went to a shop yesterday and got everthing I needed, reel,line,flies, etc..I am really psyched!! I live in Kirkland and was wondering about any good places nearby to start out at, I was thinking maybe Rattlesnake Lake, but any other suggestions would be appreciated. Also, I'm going to practice C&R, but in the books and articles I've read I haven't found any suggestions on the quickest and most humane way to kill a fish if I have to (inury, hook in eye). What's the current consensus? Also, any tips anyone has for a rookie would be great. Thanks everyone, I hope to make some new friends on this sight.
