Monday I had the opportunity to spend a day on the Little Truckee river with Albert of Las Vegas and Incline Village on his first fishing trip at 63 years of age. We enjoyed a beautiful day of instruction on the basics of fly fishing from casting, rigging , and fighting fish. Albert was a great student who showed more interest in learning proper techniques than actually catching fish. After a couple of hours the green drakes and pmd`s started hatching. This gave us several chances to hook fish on dries. Several rises and grabs later, Albert is on to an acrobatic 18″ rainbow. Patience and instruction paid off with the landing of Alberts first fish. Way to go Albert! Good company, fishing and the beautiful scenery of the Little Truckee river made for a great day for both Albert and myself. As for the fishing on the Little Truckee, nymphing in the early morning is effective and then switch to pmd dries in late morning when hatch starts .
