My fishing life began at the young age of three out at Topaz Lake, a treasure of Nevada. I was there more for a chance to be out of the house and my Dad was the one doing most of the fishing. Being a fourth generation Nevadan, my entire life has revolved around being an outdoorsman. Fishing at three, sitting in a duck blind by four holding a red rider, and of course the big game hunting that my brother and I got to tag along for starting at eight years old. I’ve thrown spinners and bait as well as fly fished since I was a boy. So, let’s talk about fly fishing vs spin fishing.
