Default 'Howzit' from a South African in the UK

Hi all!

I have been a member of the UK sister site 'Fly Fishing Forums' for a while now and I've decided to join in here and hopefully expand my fly fishing horizons. I see there are quite a few UK members present on this forum already.

A bit about me - I'm a South African currently living in the UK. I enjoy fishing rivers and particularly small streams. Trout are my preferred quarry - places where trout exist tend to be beautiful places. South Africa was a great place to learn fly fishing but now I do most of my fishing in Wales, where there are many rivers and streams with trout and grayling in abundance.

I enjoy travelling and fishing, and whilst I have visited California, Washington state and Nevada I have yet to cast a fly rod in the US. I hope to do so soon and was thinking of a holiday to the US this year. Hopefully I will pick up a few tips here before I visit!

Other interests of mine are rugby and cricket, although most of you will prefer American football and baseball I'm sure

Regards
Justin

Thanks for the welcome Larry and Eunan. I'm looking forward to learning a lot and contributing where I can add value.

Eunan - Super XV is my fix, other than fly fishing of course!

Hello Justin. Strangely enough I,m a displaced american born in Washington State(Anacortes) living in northwest england married to an english woman and I used to love fishing for trout and other species in my home state. Managed to get back in summer 2010 for six weeks and fished Banks Lake, eastern Washington five times with mixed results-water too high and cold, but still caught on spinning tackle-Thank God for smallmouth bass and kokanee! Enjoy the forum. I haven,t been on here much lately as spend more time on the FFF, but plan to soon alter that.
__________________
The scenery in the Grand Coulee area of eastern Washington was worth the cost of the air fare on its own. Two doe whitetailed deer drinking not twenty yards away from my boat partner and I as a golden eagle flew overhead looking for dinner. Magnificent and etched in my memory for all time!
