I just moved to Fort Collins from Michigan and I am used to trolling Lake Michigan on my boat for salmon and steal head. I fished one river pretty hard for steal head but we used spinning reels with 9' rods and either spawn, flies, or jigs under a float tipped with wax worms. I remember taking my grandpas fly rod when I was really young out on the lake and catching bluegills but other than that I have no clue how to fly fish. I just took my first trip up to the Rocky Mountain National Park today and seeing the trout streams made me want to jump in and catch some fish. If anyone is willing to take a newbie fishing on a weekend as I work during the week that would be great! Give me some advance notice so I can go buy some gear. I need some advice on a good setup for a beginner also. I get out of work at 5 during the week so if we fish close to Fort Collins that may be an option also. I used to tie my own flies for steal head but that was a LONG time ago. I think I would enjoy learning to tie flies for fishing out here so if you know how to do that also its a bonus. Thanks in advance for any advice on gear and/or any invitations to learn.
