Hi All,

I'm Ryan and I live in the Onalaska/Holmen WI area. Been kayak fishing for a few years but want to start trout fishing this spring (fly and spinner, really want to try out fly fishing). I'm sure I'll be around the boards a lot asking dumb questions!

Welcome Ryan! Feel free and ask all the "dumb" questions you want! But don't forget, search is your friend and you can usually PM people for spots, if you're nice (Thanks Gurth!)

Ha ha... don't be spreading nasty rumors. Flapper

I don't give out spots to just anyone although most of us will help to steer in the right direction for people who contribute around here.

You were in effect, my guest and I was happy to take you there.

Hey Guys, New member here, I teach and coach in Okoboji, Ia. I love fly fishing but opportunities are limited here in NW Iowa. Hired a guide at Taneycomo this past week and had a ball. Highly recommend it. Long drive though. Looking to get over to NE Iowa or SE Minn soon. If any of you are headed to Okoboji ice fishing we are killing the panfish in the bays. Even catching a few on my poorly tied rockworm patterns. It's just not the same rush as trout on the fly rod.

Hi all,

I'm Conner. Have been reading this forum for a long while and finally decided to join. Fly fishing for trout is my favorite way to fish, but I love it all (from bluegills to soaking cutbait for catfish...). I've been fishing since I could walk and fly fishing for about nine years (which means nothing besides I'm stubborn and love it too much). Also enjoy tying flies and good fishing literature. Most of my fishing happens in SE MN but I also love the Boundary Waters and enjoy a good fishing trip. Mousing is my favorite way to chase trout.

Note on the username: Little Grumpy was my "trail name" as a BWCA guide last summer. Apparently I look grumpy if tired or haven't fished for a while, but really I'm a happy person :) "Grumpy" was also the trail name of an older Appalachian Trail thru-hiker I met one weekend on the AT and look up to - despite cold wind and rain, Grumpy was one of the most joyous people on the trail despite the conditions, a virtue I look up to.

Looking forward to learning from everyone here!

Welcome Grumpy.

Love the BWCAW. Used to go almost every year. Haven’t been since 2005. Life happened haha.

Welcome Grumpy. I didn't get a chance to mouse last year, but I love that too.

The BWCA is an amazing resource. My last trip was 2017 with my son and 5 other friends. We camped at the West end of Sea Gull but did do some day trips beyond.
