Default Re: Hello I'm New Here..

Thanks everyone for the warm wishes. This place does seem like a very good place with very good people.

Fred - I went ahead and added my location. I've only fished a few rivers/creeks (Kankakee River in Illinois, Brule River in Wisconsin, and a small creek up in the Great Smokey Mountains) But man I've had tons of fun.

RandomUser - The tackle store I got it from (wasn't very fly friendly) had it in a container that labeled it a helgramite pattern, but not sure how accurate it is. I was originally fishing a woolybugger, but they just wouldn't take it.

I knew the creek was filled with helgramites, so I said, why not. Then proceeded to slay these smallies.

And yes to all those that said they are good fighters, I definitely agree with you. My buddy who is pretty new to fly fishing, has never caught a smallie before, but the yell he gave when he finally hooked into one made me giggle like a school girl.

Man I miss fishing. Why work, when you can fish right?
