First off, this is my first post, so HELLO! Im Jerod, my friends call me Jrod. I live in kettering.
Now, with the introduction out of the way, Ive determined that this year, im going to spend a lot more time fishing. I used to fish a ton when i was growing up with my dad, but it seems now that Im off on my own, and married, ive spent very little time fishing.
I grew up around Mt Orab/Georgetown and had plenty of places i knew to fish at. But since ive been in dayton for the last 8 years, I really dont know where to go, besides some of the metro parks. They are ok, but i like a little less fished areas.
Obviously everyone has their "secret spots" but rough estimates of decent fishing spots would be great.
I just got back from a vacation in Utah, and went fly fishing for my first time. I am TOTALLY HOOKED (no pun intended)
A friend just gave me an old fly rod, nothing great, but its fine to practice on and get better with. Where would be some good spots to try it out? I dont mind wading (once it gets a little warmer) and like to do it on smaller streams and slow rivers.
Dont care what im fishing for really. I love bass of course, but im totally fine catching blue gills and crappie too.
Oh, and heres a Pic of my very first rainbow trout!! Im on the left, and thats my guide Terry Gunn on the right holding the fish! Awesome experience!!!
