I've been flyfishing nearly 30 years and been lucky to fish some amazing places - fresh and salt but I never fished for smallmouth or any other warmwater fish before this year.
I am very impressed with smallmouth on the river - they remind me of mangrove snappers - really agressive and hard fighting.
My next target is big carp and there are a couple of trophy walleye lakes near me.
Anyone ever target walleye on fly? Must get working on those landlocked alewife immitations! From what I've read they swim deep during the day but come to the shallows at night.

I did it !
Well my very first ever experience in flyfishing happened yesterday. Caught a ton of blue gill and sunfish. What a rush. I did much better then the kids did on worms. They attack my fly with a vengence :hehe:

We also used to pull some BIG eastern pickeral out of Lake Otsego ? (30 years ago)
Miss pickeral here in the mid west, but there is our legendary wisconsin and minnesota musky fisheries to replace them which I have pursued over the years.

Its never to late and warm water is a good place to start.
How is lake Otsego and the hall these days.
Last time there was in 1996 for a visit.
Did not look like it changed much from 30 years prior and I hope it never does.
You will find a lot of good FF people and information on this board to get you going in the right direction.
Have fun !

I am so siked
36 years of fishing and now I decide to get involved in flyfishing Why did I not start sooner I will never know. Anyhow I am going to start with warmwater species, like panfish. I cant wait until I set my first hook into a fish with a fly or popper. Sorry if I'm rambling, but its all new to me.
