    I posted this tidbit on a Facebook group but wanted to post it here. This is one of the essential ways I learned to fly fish on Taneycomo.
    I have been fishing Taneycomo since I was able to walk. Videos of me on the banks of The Mistress, as I call her, moving around in a walker are out there somewhere. I caught my first fish on the lake (a sucker) and have been fishing it ever since. It holds a special place in my heart.
    A moment that truly sticks out from the rest is from June 2002. I was a young, 11-year-old kid cutting my teeth on fly fishing by outlet two. I tried to imitate everybody I saw. How they casts their flies, how they stood, and how they carried themselves. Gramps always liked to get away from the crowds and wade out into deeper water. Me being short and young--I stayed near the outlets. I caught a lot of fish, don't get me wrong, but I was young. One day while wading near the outflow of outlet two, a white-haired man came over and said, "Son, do you mind if I give you a few pointers?" I said of course. I was, and still am, always eager to learn. He told me to back up from where the fish were, get rid of my indicator and use a tiny split shot on my scud to get it on the bottom. I caught fish after fish while he stood there and coached me, netted fish for me, and told me how good of a job I was doing. He helped me for hours, all while never wetting his line. It was amazing. I thanked him profusely, as did my grandpa when he came to pry my wader boots off the rocks for dinner that night. The lessons I have learned from that day in June 2002 still resonate with me and I always think "what would he do?" when fishing Taney. If you have fished Taney for a while, you probably already know who I am talking about. 
    I learned, years later, the nice man that helped me was a legend named Duffy.

    I talked to a guy recently at K&K who says he uses a big mouse fly in July/August when the water is off. Wades out 50 feet or so and casts towards the bank and crushes nice browns. Honestly for me I started tying a year and a half or so ago and really got into it last year. Now I just want to see if my stuff will catch fish lol! So far, so good.

    Man that stinks. As long as you have good fly line, the rest really doesn't matter in my opinion. Splurge on line and you can cast fine and handle fish with your beater set up. You don't need a $1200 Winston. 
    It's hard to put down a jig rod when you have confidence and are adept at it. Once you set some time aside to catch them on a fly rod, you'll start making time in the future.

    I was just telling Chuck how I secretly love fly fishing. I have been tying a ton this winter. I just cant help but throw a jerk in a tourney. But fly fishing by myself up there was something I needed. It really is humbling and as Chuck said "ain't no 10-lb test on a fly rod, let 'em tire!"

    Forgot to mention, as the rain was coming down Sunday while wading I noticed fish starting to midge, as well as midges flying around me. Put on a tandem of a #16 Primrose and pearl and a #18 Ruby midge and had a take on every single drift. It was nuts.
