About one and a half years into my being a member, The North American Fly Fishing Forum was acquired by Fish & Fly LTD of the UK. And since then our membership grew form a few thousand to 29,600 and is getting larger every day. As all of the changes that came with becoming part of a global network of online publications began to take affect the administration felt that adding an Alaskan section to the site would perhaps be popular with the members.

The ability to scan some old pictures made this story possible, Thank You 'hp'.

I've always been a little different and for all intent and purpose I believe that I made it that way. When it came to fishing I was one of those guys who scheduled their life around fishing as opposed to the visa versa. I had a fairly long history of getting involved with environmental sorta things that went back to the early 80's when I met a fellow named Tom. Tom was a waterways patrolman for the Pennsylvania...
