You look at old fur coats in junk stores and wonder if they will make a good fly.

you stop for roadkill, any roadkill including skunks (poor mans polar bear on the stripe) for your flytying supplies. I might as well make this my first post.

The value of your fly fishing gears equals or exceeds the value of your truck...

Words like haul, swing, vise, leader, taper, grip, and a hundred more have only one real application for you.

When you have learned to limit your kill not kill your limit

When there's only one place you would really like to be

I could go on but I figure you guys got that. It's my life, it's the only thing I've never quit but haven't finished.

Ard

And welcome to the forum Dave

You can't go over a bridge with water under it or look at any body of water without looking for rises.

The more people say you can't catch it on a fly the harder you try!

Whether your traveling to a wedding a funeral or a business
meeting your rod and equipment is with you!

Vacation never ever means Disneyland or cocktails by the beach it means fly fishing for something!

No matter what store or mall your in you find the craft dept or some place for materials or equipment enhancing.

If your significant other doesn't like fly fishing or you doing it time for a change. FAST!

before your friends/family invite you anywhere they ask "are you going to the river today?"
