Default I am the worst fisherman in the world...

Hi All

Just thought I would introduce myself, my name is Nick but my handle is an acronym for the title, an honour betsowed on me many years ago by my best mates sister who saw how much effort we put in to our fishing trips, and how few fish we actually caught

Anyway I am originally from South Africa, but now I live in Saskatchewan, Canada, and for a long time in SA I course-fished competitively and fly fished on and off the whole time. But now that I am here and course-fishing is kinda non-existant I have decided to take my fly fishing to a new level.

I started tying flies in Dec 09 and am ferociously working my way to a point where I have "the basics"... which would be OK if I were only to target trout... well no it wouldn't, there are enough trout flies/variations/colours etc to keep one busy well past the grave... but you see if it swims I like to catch it... So I am preparing myself to be able to fish for trout, pike, walleye, goldeye, suckers and anything else that swims near me... which is a tough ordeal having started from scratch a few months ago. But here the season opens on May 8, and I will be ready.

Anyway, just thought I would say hi, and I hope to be an active contributor here on the forums. At the moment I am in a learning and absorbing state, so without a doubt my contributions will be questions at first, unless we're talking about carp, cos carp and I go waaaaay back... thanks for reading and catcha later!

Nick

Nick. You came to the right spot.
Like Maxwell Smart, of "Get Smart" says everything is the second (that's the SECOND biggest elephant I've ever seen). So a short time here you can be TSWFITW

to this great forum...You can't be the worst fisherman in the world...what's great with flyfishing is that you never stop learning...that's why it's really addictive

Hi Nick,

Welcome to the forum. I am glad you decided to join and look forward to your participation. We have many tutorials in the the Frequently Asked Forum for fly tying. You might learn a trick or two from them.

Frank

Default Re: I am the worst fisherman in the world...

thanks for all the welcomes! yeah I have been searching through these forums and old posts and have learnt so much already, picked up some great patterns, and realised that there is so much more to do... As far as having the title of the worst... It works as anything I accomplish is then quite remarkable

Anyway now I am gonna tie a few more chironomids, and then I am off to try out Chan's technique in my stocked dugout...
