Started tying flies a little over a month ago after being bitten by the fly fishing bug back in October. Learning a little bit more everyday and TG for YouTube!! My wife thinks I've lost my mind, since I now have gear for just about every type of fishing there is! LOL

Take it easy on me....100% self taught but having a blast!

It's tiny creek near where I live in Santa Paula. Unfortunately, I think the drought took its toll on the little wild trout that lived there. Years ago, I used to take an ultralight and pinch the barbs down on the smallest Panther Martins they made and would routinely C&R double digits on my hike up to the falls. Super bummed I didn't see a single fish in the pools. Hopefully, a few made it and they'll recover in a few years. Fingers crossed.....

Nice bugs !

Learn how to tie the Flashtail Clouser on a 60 degree jig hook.
Probably the most versatile saltwater fly a guy can have in the box.

Better tie up some midnight cowboy buggers , boobies and some beetles.
Yup, that’s what I hear. It definitely looks like an interesting fishery. Those Cutts are massive!

Yeah. They get some big ass cutthroats If u need a guide look up nick Jackson at pyramid lake guides. If you are coming from SoCal its definitely worth the $$ to make the most out of your trip and fish with some who knows how to fish pyramid and has the latest info. I live in NW Reno now and the first time out I went with nick.
