Greetings all, my name is Joe and I'm a little late with the introduction having joined this particular website last fall. I've gone by the tag of "Dizzy" on various other fishing websites, but it was taken here, so I had to come up with something else.
I'm currently (still) going through a major transition in my fly-fishing life having been born and raised in eastern Pennsylvania and fishing the limestone-rich streams of the Lehigh Valley and the wild free-stoners of the Pocono Mountains to now having to learn the tailwater fisheries of Utah after moving here in fall of 2010. So my home waters of Bushkill Creek, Saucon Creek, and Martins Creek as well as the Pocono Creek, Bushkill (yes, there are two), and Brodhead River have been replaced by the Provo River, Weber River, and American Fork here along the Wasatch Front in Utah. So far the results have been mixed; the scenery is by far more stunning, but to date the fishing results have been a bit of a setback… but it's still very much a work in progress, and a challenge that I welcome.
I am also an avid fly-tyer with a strong preference for tying/fishing wingless soft hackles in the tradition of Leisenring, Hidy, Nemes, and now Dave Hughes.
In my short time here I must say that this site is one of the best I've ever seen and can't figure out for the life of me why it took so long for me to find; lots of information to be found here as well as lot of fun and very knowledgeable anglers… and I look forward to sharing in all of that.
