Default Introductions

Hello Folks:

I'm Steve Robbins and, no doubt, an avid fly fisherman with more than 35 years of fishing experience. I am the Site Administrator of this forum. I also serve as the director of the Fly Fishing program at Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas and have been teaching the art of fly fishing for more than eight years. I also teach an occasional fly fishing class for Panola College and Texarkana College in East Texas. I am the immediate past president and founder of Lone Star Fly Fishers in Tyler which is the premier fly fishing club in East Texas. I have given many fly fishing presentations and seminars to various fly fishing clubs, civic organizations and youth groups. I am also the owner of The Full Creel Fly Shop www.thefullcreel.com.

I enjoy all types of fly fishing but I am a small stream fanatic. I love the high mountain streams and spring creeks. I'm usually always alone and at piece with nature and all if its grandeur. I love to fish many small streams in Colorado... Mostly the Durango area. I also frequent New Mexico.

I hope to get to know each member of this wonderful forum. We have a great group of anglers here and I look forward to watching us grow this discussion group into one of the largest forums in the nation.

Well, my name is Mike and I am a die hard fly tosser. I have been fly fishing since I was 13 or so when my Grandfather taught me the sport throwing large Pencil Poppers for Stripers along the California Coast Line. My very first fish on a fly was a 20lb + Striper that quite literally kicked my butt, yes, I was hooked from then on.

When my Grandfather died in 1981, I kinda fell away from the sport, as it was never the same. I continued to fish and stopped again in 1982 when I enlisted in the US Army.

I moved to Utah in 1997 and that is where I met a bunch of fly fishing nuts that got me back into the sport and got me to also start tying my own flies. I made some great friends like Jaymorr and we had some great time sharing lies and fishing times together.

I moved to Arizona in Dec of '04 and have gone from mainly Stillwater Trout fishing to warm water fly fishing...

I met Steve through another site and decided to join his. He has since asked me to help him with the design and installation of this site. It has really turned into a great looking forum with some wonderfull people.

Well, that is about it..

I am who I am...

Glad to be here...

Hi Alex,

Welcome to the forum. Are you an active fly fisher and are you near some of the great Russian Trout and Salmon fishing?

Frank

I'm in this "business" for 15 years. As for the rivers- it all depends. Kola is closer than Kamchatka, but it's 2500 km way. But trout rivers are reachable for weekend(400-900 km road). But mostly I prefer(for many reasons- lack of the time- the main) fishing for chub, walleye, pike. For example-this weekend- light onehander, skagit line,big fly- 5 waleyes caught, 9 lost and countless takes... And it took only 7 ouhrs including the road...

Alex,

I never thought about Russia having Walleyes. Did you catch them in a river or lake? I assume it was a river. What season is it there now? It is the end of Summer here in Florida.

Yes, it was a river. Now it's the middle of the Fall. BTW, according to the weather report the snow is expected for a week...
