Does your vehicle smell like fish because your net has been used so many times it reeks?

I'm not sure if I'd consider myself hardcore or not, but I do enjoy trout fishing. I don't fly fish, but hit the Little Red River every chance I get. Went a few days ago with my Dad and we kept 7. Caught about 3 limits total, but they made us work for it. The Corps didn't generate that day so the fish were deep, but it was nice being on the water. I'll probably hit it again this week sometime. I enjoy eating trout too. Fishing for them is pretty fun. I enjoy going with my Dad and FIL.

I don't get out nearly as much as I would like, but I can answer yes to every question in your blog. I do quite a bit of fly fishing here in Pennsylvania. Some of the more well known destinations in the region I frequently visit are Kettle Creek, Sinnemahoning Creek, Little Juniata River, and Spring Creek. Also Erie tribs for steelhead, although it seems to have gone downhill lately. Weather is not a factor, I will pick up and go any day out of the year if I have the urge.

Fishing, much more than hunting (until recently) has been my primary passion. I have gone through phases as to what species I am targeting. In my youth trout ruled the day, and in my 20s-early 30s bass was everything. I used to do tournament bass fishing, but life, marriage, and kid have put a stop to that. In the past two years I have really gotten back into trout fishing. I fished at least once a month last year.

As for methods, I am a spin fisherman who uses a lot of fly fishing tactics at times. By that I mean I have one rod rigged with siglon-f floating mono and then a long flouro leader to something like a trout bead or a bead-headed nymph. I also love to fish jerkbaits for trout.

I used too be, but my job has stepped in the way quite a bit the last few years. I still love to get out and go some here at the local streams. But I still make a it up to fish in Erie tributaries and up in New York in the lake Ontario tributaries also. So I guess I'm still pretty hard core just not as much.
