Default New guy on the river

Well I think I should make an introduction to the forum so here it goes.

My name is Layton McAndrew and all I think about is fishing, I was an avid master baiter until last christmas when I received an orvis clearwater rod and reel which was a big step up from a walmart rod.

I live on Prince Edward Island, Canada. One of the only places in the world where brookies are still king. I am lucky enough to be able to go to almost any brook, creek, or stream and catch brookies over 12". The biggest one I saw this year was 28" and around 8lbs, the biggest I've caught was 3.5lbs and 21" but that was on bait.
We are also lucky enough to have a few rivers with bows, these were accidentally introduced form cages, these fish were of steelhead strain so we now have half a dozen rivers with awesome steelhead fishing with 10lbs fish being caught every year.
And last but not least we have a number of rivers that are home to atlantic salmon, and this year I caught a 34" kelt

So I guess I can say that I am thankful to have such an awesome fishery at my doorstep and hope to expand my knowledge in fly fishing via people I meet on the river and over the web

I envy those brooks you have up there. Around here, a brook over 8 inches is big, a brook over 10 inches is a trophy.

Thank you all for the warm welcomes.
Yeah I'd say that I am quite lucky to have some awesome brookies and your welcome to join me on the river any day.
I also just got into fly tying so that should keep the winter blues in check, I really hope to get a good dry and nymph collection together over the winter as I love the challenge of figuring out what's hatching or what the trout are rising for.

Earlier this year I was spending the day on one of my favorite rivers, there was some hatch going on and I caught nearly a hundred bows and brookies that day.
The very next day I was completely skunked as far as drys go but got a few bows on a PTN
