I've been trout fishing since I could walk. I did a ton of fly fishing in my teens and twenties, but I've honestly fell out of the loop recently. One, I just don't have time to dedicate to it anymore and two, I've had way too much success spin fishing in the last few years. Most of my fishing these days is having a couple of hours to spare here and there and spin fishing just plain works better for that. I'd love to get back into fly fishing, but I'd need a whole new setup. The setup I grew up with was built for southern Appalachian trout fishing. Tiny, laurel choked streams. It's a 7' 4 weight that just gets overpowered here in CO. Any breeze and it's worthless. Well, here in CO, there's always some kind of breeze. I'd probably look for a 9' 5 weight for CO fishing. Maybe one day. I just have too much shit going on to get back into it right now.
