Default Hello, New Member.

Howdy all. I'm new to this forum, but not new to fly fishing. I've just taken a decade or so long hiatus from tying (though not fishing) and I hope to get help here to get back into it. I'm eager to start tying flies and jigs again for everything from inshore saltwater to bass and pan fish. I'm in South Florida, so there's no shortage of fish. I hope to learn a lot.

FQ: Welcome to the forum! You're located in a great place to wet a line, like you said there isn't any shortage of fish down there!

Thumbs up Re: Hello, New Member.



Never had the opportunity to fish your end of the US, save for TV programs. Think you've got a good deal going!

Thanks for the welcome Fred. And I don't mean to correct your quote, but A, I'm a former poli sci professor and I can't help it, and B, I think you will get more mileage out of the quote, if like me you enjoy shooting and and hunting as much as fishing. Its not from Churchill, its from George Orwell. He was a dyed in the wool socialist, but also a former police officer in Burma and a staunch proponent of private gun ownership. Its fun to watch the lefties cringe when you trot that one out, and I'd hate to deprive you of even a drop of enjoyment from it, because its true wisdom and a great quote. As when one of the icons of Fabian socialism says in essence "Buy a bloody gun or suffer", they really have nowhere to turn do they?

PS Come on down. The latest new fad (They change by the week with the introduction of foreign species) are Asian Snake heads. I thought peacock bass were cool, but these beasts put them to shame. They're 3-5 pounds, frighteningly aggressive and like things like a spinner bait on a spinning rod. I thought a popping bug would work, but thus far no dice. They want something loud and fast. I'm not sure what the fly rod solution is yet, but a shiny streamer worked fast in erratic jerks will apparently do it. Anyway, even if you never set foot in a boat, you never know what you'll catch. Large mouths and bluegill, or peacocks or Oscars, or chillicids or snakeheads, or tarpon, all out of a roadside canal. Heck, if you get real lucky you might snag a python.

Welcome. If you put "South Florida" in your heading, you will likely get more "South Florida" specific information.

Yeah, but then folks would know I live in this lunatic asylum. I mean living here is one thing, but admitting to it publically?

Welcome to the forum. I was born and raised in south Florida. I moved away about 40 years ago. I miss the unlimited outdoors opportunities there and the year round climate that promotes getting outside.
I fished from Lake Okeechobee to the Keys, all over the Gulf, the Bahamas and the glades.
Bonefish, Dorado, tarpon, and reds on an fly ? Awesome.
Salt water flies can be very expensive, so learning to tie your own can save you big bucks. Enjoy !
