    I always wanted to go fly fishing in AK or MT or ID or some place out in the middle of nowhere with mountains off in the distance.

    Is it easy to fly fish? a lot of work?

    I've gone primarily trout fishing when I grew up in PA. I preferred a crick and the moving water more than a lake. When I was wee little I went with my grandpap and he had waders and I didn't, but I still followed him into the crick to fish. We got scolded later by my grandma cause I was all wet, but I didn't care, it was fun.

    The thing that always seemed cool about fly fishing was the action. I get really bored lake fishing and just watching and waiting. Fly fishing looks much more active.

    Do you catch a lot quickly? Do you have to go at a certain time? Does the way you make a fly mattter? or is it more about the casting technique?
    Get rid of your ultralight and bobber and get some big boy gear...then you can fish like a big boy instead of getting bored waiting for a bobber to twitch.

    This isn't boring at all!

    Stlrz-D, I've not caught that many fish in a lifetime on a lake. Geesh those fishes were jumping.

    DJ - Fly fishing sounds pretty interesting. I think I could definitely get into that. How long does it take to make the flies? How often do u get to go? The fishing in the winter part sounds the best. Nice pics btw.

    Shawn - U got some pretty unique hobbies. What's something u haven't done but would like to try?

    I don't know if this is a hobby but I would love to be fluent in several languages. I took some french in HS and college but promptly forgot it. So, I have the Rosetta Stone LA-Spanish 1-5 coming in the mail.

    It only takes seconds to tie some, and a few minutes to tie others. It really depends on what I'm tying.

    I bought stuff to learn how to fly hoppers (grass hoppers) out of foam. These are way cool because they stay afloat. The problem is that they can look like a Dr. Suess item if not careful.

    I go a lot. Great fly fishing in a major river in the wild is only about 20 minutes from me. AMAZING fly fishing is about one hour. If I want a lake to fish in they are all around me. There is one with Arctic Greyling in it about one hour from me. I can't wait to hit that one.

    I know enough Spanish to get by. I'd like to live somewhere like Costa Rica some day (it's dirt cheap) and I'd probably try Rosetta Stone before I moved there. I've heard those a really easy to learn from. And it'll make you fairly fluent quickly. but that was a 14 year old, so maybe kids can learn quicker??

    Re: Getting to Know You

    Like DJ, I like to fly fish. In the early spring and late fall, I fish for trout in the mountain streams. Some of them are "stocked", but I like to hit the smaller, less commercialized streams and go for the native brownies. I'm still learning to tie my own flies. In the summer, I trade in the flies for poppers at the end of my leader. Stlrs_d is right, it's hard to beat a bass hitting top water on a popper. Our mountain lakes here are like glass in the late evenings and I mean it's an absolute religious experience to be out on the water on a john boat, a pair of oars, and some fly tackle.

    Most of you know my other odd hobby...my Bulldogs. Sadly I report we had a litter about a week and a half ago, six out of seven pups died the first day. We have one little boy left and he's doing great. I showed my 7 month old pup Holly last weekend in Waynesburg, PA, and she won her first championship point, so I'm pretty stoked that.

    I'm trying to teach my boys how to snipe hunt, but it's been slow going, as they've yet to bag their first one yet.
