New to FF and New to the Forum from SW WI
 
Hello All,
Browsed the forums for many tips and good reads, thought it was about time to say hello. I am new to FF but have fished warm water since I was a kid. Forester living in SW Wisconsin in the Coulees. I was introduced to FF by co-workers and friends since this area is a great place to learn and have fun. Currently fishing using dry flies (with moderate success on brooks and rainbows) and trying to learn the art of using sub-surface and finding some browns. Would like to find others in the area to share water and techniques as well as a few stories.

Hi jcjspringers,

Welcome to the forum. I think you will enjoy the forum and fly fishing. If you ask questions it will be helpful if you add your general location to your profile. You can do that by clicking on "UserCP' at the top of the page.

hey jcjspringers, welcome to the board, glad you found us.

Hopefully you'll hook up with some of our members out your way. You might also be interested in checking out a local Trout Unlimited Chapter. There's a bunch of 'em in WI. Most chapters are pretty welcoming to new members, have group trips to local waters, and informative meetings. And it's a good way to make some new fishing buddies.

Looking forward to your posts, as a forester you're in a great position to find some great stretches of water. Hopefully you have room in the truck for a rod for "lunch breaks". :)

Being a forester does have perks, but finding promising creeks while working puts a knot in my gut trying to figure out how to cast without loosing my fly. I am getting better, and perhaps somewhat inventive with casting with low lying branches so there is hope for me.
