I joined back in February but never introduced myself. I have posted a few times already and I guess I broke protocol by not introducing myself. I never noticed this section until today....... sorry.
Anyhow, I've fished since childhood and began flyfishing in the 1970's. I took a Fenwick Fly Fishing Class and Gary Borger was the instructor. Later I learned that he lived a few miles from me and our families became friends.
I have some land in Montana on a spring creek and I get out there to fish it and the Madison River just about every year. I usually stay with another friend, Jim Greenlee, who has a place on the Madison. Jim owned Weinbrenner and Jim and Gary came up with the Gary Borger wading boot year ago. Jim has since sold the company and moved to his place on the Madison. Jim passed away last year.
I was a founding member of our TU chapter back in the early 1980's and I write articles for our local newsletter and for Wisconsin Trout, our state TU paper.
I am still learning about fly fishing and hope to participate when I can.
Here are a few photos:
Jim Greenlee, Bill Jones, and me. Bill and I own adjacent properties on the spring creek.

Gary Borger and my favorite local stream is a mixture of tight cover and open deep pools.
