I'd like to say hello to everyone and give a brief introduction.

I'm a self-employed plumber from southern Ohio, and manage to get some fishing in during the spring through fall seasons.
I've been fly fishing for a few years now, and with the exception of a couple baitcaster outfits I still use on occasion for catfishing, the fly rod is my go-to method for most of my fishing.
My fishing is mostly lakes and ponds close to home, with a little creek fishing thrown in when the opportunity arises.
I spend a lot of time casting to panfish (bluegill and crappie) with a few trips to target bass for a change of pace.
I most often use a 3wt (Sage Vantage) for panfish and a 6wt (Ross FlyStik) when the wind is strong or I'm after bass.
I tie my own flies and make my own leaders to get me through the winter months when the ice is on the water. (like it is today)

I look forward to having this forum to expand my knowledge of fly fishing, and look forward to exchanging thought and ideas with all of you!

Greetings! You've come to the right place; there's a great bunch of people on here.

If you're from OH, have you ever had a chance to get up to the Great Lakes for the steelie run? If not, you should try it in the spring. Hooking those is a thrill of a lifetime....

Hello Wabi, Happy to see you join us. Like the others have said, can't wait to read your reports and maybe see some of those flies and leaders you've been tying.

Thanks for all the welcomes!

Looks like this may be the place for me to spend a lot of my time for the next few weeks. Took a drive today and open water is scarce right now.

My posts will be a bit limited for a few days, though. Had some minor surgery last week, nothing serious, but the location makes sitting a real pain!
(A cyst removed from my hip, but it turned out to be imbedded in scar tissue and the doctor had to make a big incision to get it all out.) At least it's over with and I'll have plenty of time to heal so I won't miss any fishing.
