Default Greetings and blessings from Atchison, Kansas

To give you a little intro, I'm a Benedictine monk and priest here in Atchison, Kansas. Joined the monastery about nine years ago. A couple of years ago, dug out a fly rod and reel I'd been given as a present a fews years before I entered. I've been addicted ever since. I can relate to Norman Maclean when he claims there wasn't a clear-cut division betwen religion and flyfishing in his household.

I'll fish for anything, but the local fish are LM Bass, bluegills, crappie, etc. I'm going to give a shot at carp and freshwater drum as the Abbey sits on the Missouri River bluffs and both are plentiful.They both look to be a lot of fun to have on the end of a line, but haven't got around to it. It still amazes me that the Muddy Mo I see every day is trout water near its beginnings.

As far as my fishing ability, my flycasting and flyfishing methods warrrant a feature in a major flyfishing publication--specifically the humor column. One of my casts placed #87 on the list of "Top 100 Greatest World Disasters."

Welcome to the group! Those drum and carp should provide you lots of fun and excitement. Let us know how we can help you hook and land some of them.

I'll have to admit that the existence of a monastery in Kansas was news to me, but I guess I shouldn't be suprised. I support the Belgian Trappists occasionally, but that's about the extent of my monasteric experience.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
