I'm new, so here is my first post. I actually had this all typed up and hit the wrong button and poof, all gone. So here is take two. Probably less verbose but no less riviting (yeah right!).
I've lived in the Portland area my whole life, which is more than half over now. I'll fish for just about anything but I really enjoy flyfishing for trout. My goal this year is to catch some Steelhead... so any help with that would be great. There seems to be a lot of great experience here, so I'm learning already. Lots of nice folks too. I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you (but probably not all of you).
My fish story takes place when I was about 12. I was fishing with my dad at Diamond lake. I fished with my dad a lot when I was growing up, so what's different about this day was that I limited out and he caught nothing. And limits in those days were, well, larger than they are now. We tried changing places in the boat, switching rods, you name it, we tried it and all to no avail. It was just my day. That was cool because I didn't beat my dad at very much when I was growing up. We have enjoyed recounting that story many times over the years.
Not very exciting, but there it is. Thanks for listening. Let's see if I can actually post this this time.
