Default Re: How Did You Start

I guess my start in flyfishing was in large part due to the fishing regulations requiring atlantic salmon be fished only with a fly. That's the reason my father picked up an old bamboo rod and a Hardy St.John reel (the one in my avatar) in the '50s and stepped into the then famous Hartland salmon pool on the Saint John river. The other fishermen called him "Brown Ferry" because that was the only fly he owned and he fished it half the summer catching 16 salmon before the season ended.
A number of years later he had a few fly boxes full of flies and an extra rod or two plus a fishing partner--me
