Default Hi - New to Forum

Hello,

I'm new to the forum, and I thought I'd drop in and say hi. I grew up near the South Fork of the South Platte and I've been fishing in Colorado all my life.

I enjoy both fly fishing and spinning, mainly on rivers and streams. Glad to join the community, I'm looking forward to heading down to the river today. I've started making my own inline spinners and am going to try them with siwash hooks instead of trebles. I'm also going to try the bubble and fly method and leave the fly rod at home.

I'll post a report this evening and let you guys know if I get skunked!

Welcome aboard... don't take things too serious here and have fun. Cool on the spinners, but trout are for fly rods (says the guy entering a trout tourney this weekend with no fly rods in his gear!)

Thanks Oyey, I spent years only fly fishing, but have been enjoying the spinning rod lately. They both have their place, and as we all know both will catch trout, I just use whichever feels right that day. Good luck in the tourney!

Well, I had a good day up on the Platte. My homemade spinners worked well. I caught and released 5 or 6 little Rainbows, (6-8") and brought a 14" Brown home for dinner.

Fly and bubble have been deadly for me. What flies do you use with the bubble?
