Truckee River

You just have to keep your flies in the water. Flies that are in the water more, catch more fish. If their tangled, dirty, or in a snag, it's hard to do that, catch fish that is.

After a while that becomes easier to do. At first it's tough, especially on the Truckee River, but if you stick with it enlightenment will occur, and you'll be on your way to full ninja status. Robert's fished with me a few times, and now can mend like a mad man, cast like an animal, and play and land big fish like Steven Seagal. A few trouts from yesterday.
