Because I don't know where I am sending this.....Any way I will tell you a little about myself....I am a West Virginian....I am a born raised Hillbilly....I Lived Quit a While in Rutherford NJ Where I took my first fly Tying lessons
in Clifton NJ, TU sponsored This... What fond Memories I Have from that time...Made many friends some have just Drifted away with the Wind....I was most strongly Influence in my Flytying By Winnie and Mary Dette, and Joe Messinger This a Different Story...Every time I would go and Visit in Roscoe, I would go over to the House on cottage street I Think I was a pain in the butt ....Hmm I wonder if Mary still remembers me...I Gave Her Two Hair Bugs If you where to remind her of those I am sure she would remember me....I gave her a Messinger Frog and a Poor Bills Whampous Cat.....Yea I can't see her not remembering that......LOL Well I hope she is still doing well....

Then I moved back home to West Virginia and I Have been tying Fly's ever since....

Hi Frank,

Great job of breaking the ice (as we say in Alaska) welcome to the forum. I was born in Pennsylvania but have migrated several times and finally made my home in AK. I will look to see your flies, we have a forum called Share Patterns. I will bring a thread regarding posting pictures back to the board so you may be able to figure out how to do it.

Hi Frank,

I am from Buckhannon, WV. I currently live in Richmond, Va.
I love to fish the Cheat River, Seneca rocks area, and the Cranberry river. I fly fish... that may be an understatement LOL.

Thanks for looking through my galleries.
Dave
Perhaps we could join up on a river sometime...

Thanks in advance for sharing!

Hi Dave I like to Fish Shavers of the Cheat River and The Elk River....I am from Wheeling Area...So It puts me Pretty Far North, So I Fish Western Maryland a lot...There are a Lot off Dynamite Streams there...Those Streams are not to much for May Fly's though..Caddis Flies.... When it warms up a Bit I don't mind the long drive to the Bottom of the state for my Mayfly action..

I Hope will be talking and we can talk more about this subject....Fell Free to PM me any time...or that goes for anybody in this Group....I always enjoy the Conversation ....
