Welcome to the group! I'm looking forward to your contributions on fishing and your other areas of interest as well. Does a falconer need to leave his birds at home while fishing, to make sure they don't snatch up a fish he is trying to land?

I haven't noticed him posting much recently, but you might be interested to know that Davy Wotton is a member of our group here. He is running a thriving guiding business in the part of the US best for breeding large trout, and has been a wet fly fishing evangelist, converting many of us heathens.

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

Hello Irish Greg,

We are on the same side of the world. I unfortuantely am based in London. What hawks to you fly. I used to do falconry for a living - breeding and display flying in Darbyshire and Cardiff.
