Primary Fish

That is a difficult poll for some of us on the west coast as the choice will very with time of the year. Salmon, Steelhead, Inland and costal trout all have there high times during the year with of course some overlap.

Hal- Good poll topic, but tough. I chose freshwater bass because these are the species that are very close to home and where I'll likely unwind a few times a week after work.

If I'd had a few more votes, I'd also put notches in for stripers/bluefish and other fresh water (pike).

Same here in the mid west can fish for trout, steelhead, salmon 365 days a year, difference is that is COLDER here in the Great Lakes, than the PNW in the winter. Very hardy fishing I can assure you. "Builds Character"

Objective was to have each person vote for the one species they would be fly fishing for with most of their available time in 2002.

I think I know what the result of this poll will be, but we will see.

my vote only mentions targeted fish - all other "by-catch" is still considered "catching"

I'll go after bluegills if I have to, I just won't start out after them...

Thats what I thought more striped bass salt water FF.

But why so few steelhead FF ? Lets get those votes out for the steelhead as our primary fish this coming year.

When I get back from LA next weekend will post the FINAL results.

Won't be bringing the steelie gear to LA LA land thats for sure !!!

This voting thing doesn't lend itself to variables. I'm not going to target just stripers and blues; I may target sunfish and perch at some point, so short of what we don't have available for whatever reason, I'm in for the balance.

I have always been a trout fisherman, but this year I plan to do as much Striper fishing as possible. A 2 hour ride to the ocean while trout are right here in my backyard.

Fish you don't usually catch

Since I'm here in Hawaii, there's a plethora of fish in the salt that I could target. Could being the key word.
Last year, of the dozen trips I took wading the flats by the AF Base, I hooked a few porcupine fish, and foul-hooked a ray.
Here's the list of fish caught in 2001:
Large Mouth Bass (TX)
Blue Gill (TX)
Catfish (TX)
Striped Bass (RI/VA)
Barramundi (AU)
Sarratoga (AU)
Sleepy Cod (AU)
Porcupine Fish (HI)
Ray (HI)
Last month's addition brought the total number of kids in my household to three, three years and under. Between them and work-ups between HI and CA, I'm guessing my time on the water will be limited. Then again, I knew I bought 4-piece rods for a reason

Congrats Mitch! Three is a good number, same as me. I had to do the drive-by fishing thing for several years but since they all grew up I am starting to visualize what they might possibly mean by the golden years of angling off in the distance yet, but I see it

Wasn't sure either

Slinger,
That's what the guide called it, and it felt like reeling in a wet sock. To go along with not understanding what the guide and the other fellas were talking about, they were cracking jokes about George Michaels, and telling jokes similar to the "A rabbi, a monk, and Hitler walk into a bar..." substituting it with Aussie words that I couldn't begin to translate, let alone repeat. Like the nice guy I am, I chuckled along and added the occasional "You bet". From the years of travelling, I have come to the realization that I am too ethnocentric to live anywhere but in America.
Take care all,
Mitch

Trout

Without question for us in the West. It would be mostly trout! And when I can Steelies.

I don't get in too many hrs. of fishing through out the year, but what I have been doing for the past many years is live for the week I get to go steelhead fishing in SW Alaska. I try to take off for a few days in early April to warm up the shoulder and tweek my timing with the two hander in Erie or Pulaski, depending on water conditions. This year I may try to find an instructor in the Pulaski area to help me improve my spey casting. Anybody have any suggestions?
