Are plastic really superior to live bait?  or is it more of a convenience/not as gross thing to use plastics?

In my experience the live bait is far superior to plastics in a vertical presentation (under bobber). If you are trolling or casting and retrieving plastic is probably nearly as good.

Saltwater is really the only time I use live bait but a combo of Gulp swimming bait with a chunk of shrimp on the hook is the best of both worlds - more and better bites from live bait but still has the castability of plastics.

The downside is you will get more bites from smaller fish so in the typical KS pond or lake it means more sunfish will hit your 3” swimming shad if you have a chunk of nightcrawler on the tip of the hook.

I'm taking a vision quest to CO/WY over the summer and will be doing some fly fishing. I have never fly fished before and need some tips on what kind of setup to buy. I dont need anything super fancy since I only plan on using it a couple times.

Should I just buy a starter kit like this?

Definitely recommend a combo to start, but I've never heard of Wild Water.

If you've got a little bit of flexibility on budget, I've heard great things about this rod and it comes with a lifetime warranty.

A slightly cheaper option, and a pretty decent entry level rod, but no warranty.

Have never been trout fishing but am heading out a vision quest out west this summer to do it!

I haven't even put new line on my poles since last year, probably wont go fishing for a couple more weeks. :(

You'll love it! It's seriously the best. They fight and they're a beautiful fish.

Wacky, I saw those massive fish you caught down in Bennett Springs. What kind of bait did you use?

I never got to post these last ones and we actually ended up at roaring river. The last trout is the big one in this pic. We use lots of lures. Mostly fly ones with yellow tint is what they were working on. Also lime yellow and red plastic worms.

That's awesome you get to do a trip with your dad.   Treasure those times.  I love taking my September vision quests to Wyoming with my dad.

Crappie biting at the farm yesterday. Mrs 8 got a boat for Xmas so she was trolling like a pro.  Twenty or so keepers between bass and crappie.
