Once I arrived the weather took a turn for the worse but thankfully I packed a Goretex jacket. The walk from my hotel to the river walk was a short one but it was def a little scary for the country boy.
Chicago is a friendly town. While walking the sea wall in howling wind and rain I came across another angler. Being the only two people around we said hello and Mike helped me learn this new fishery. We caught some fish. I hope we can fish together another time.
I used a 9 ft 9 wt and a an intermediate Rio Outbound line. I used 16 flouro tippet which may have bee a little thick. If I were to go back again I might take a line that sinks a bit more and a little bit lighter tippet.
