I am from Vancouver BC, (southwest BC). I am really new to fly fishing, in fact I bought a very cheap $45 rod from wallmart, 8' #5 line and I am trying to make do. I went fishing a little while back in a small lake, its very public which causes a problem. I don't have a boat or a float tube so I was fishing off the beach, I tried using dry flies because the fish were feeding pretty activley on the surface(jumping etc.) but I didn't get a bite. Then I tried an olive colored nymph pattern and didn't get any bites using the hand twist method but I did get one when I retrieved it quite fast.
