I hear that. While working in Orvis the gentlemen customers would just walk right past when I asked if I could help. The fact that I am a guide also, they always say can you help my wife, when I have accually helped several men.
I am trying to get my fishing ladies on board here. I have fished with several and they are getting better real fast. Lefty knows about women and fly fishing.
Hope I see you post more, I would live to hear how you are progressing. You got the passion I can tell.
