First Post

The Author with a 29" Brown from the Nevada side of the Truckee
Caught last July on a Micro Mayfly Nymph
Hi All,

My name is Jake Manoukian. Since this is my first post I should give you some background info about myself. I am a 19 year old student at Middlebury College in Vermont. I work in the fly shop in the summers mainly opening shipments from Simms and cleaning the fly bins; but sometimes Dave lets me organize the size labels for our apparel. Anyway, when I'm not working or building model airplanes, you can find me fishing one of our local rivers, usually swinging nymphs and landing hogs. The Truckee is my favorite river, but I fish the Little Truckee, the Carson, and even the Sparks Marina pretty frequently. So if you like talking about fishing, or anything else I suppose, feel free to comment on any of my posts and we will be able to get a little rapport going. Thanks for reading, and you will hear from me soon. -JM


  1. Hello Jake. Mark from Northern California Trout.


    Welcome to the West. Hope your summer stay is memorable enough that you keep coming back. That brown is certainly a good start. Stop by and say Hi, when you have a minute.

  2. Shoreman-

    I will keep coming back as long as my parents let me live with them-the next two years anyway. Thanks for stopping by and saying Hi.

  3. What a beast in that pic. The fish is big too.
