Another PA fella! (take 2)
 
I first posted my intro in the UK forum:shocking: so I'm just doing a copy and posting one here since that was the original intention:

Hi everyone! My name is Todd and thought I'd join the forum here.
I own a remodeling business in the Harrisburg, PA area (Enola based) so alot of my time is absorbed with just that.

Before my own business I was employed for an eternity and the never ending stress is what got me away from fly fishing and fishing in general even though my fifth wheel camper is at a campground on the Susquehanna.
Obviously, being a business owner takes on a whole new and different line of stress, I've picked the rods back up to keep myself sane I'm planning on doing a lot more fly fishing again, already been out and gearing up with some odds and ends that I need.

I've been thinking about getting some new gear to add to the collection. Right now for trout, I use a Berkley 5w rod with Martin reel and for bass I have a vintage set up (don't laugh because I love it...) an early 80's Diawa Rod with a K-Mart 333 reel. That was my first fly rod handed to me by my pap so I will always have it, learned on it and still use it. I'm thinking of stepping up to a bigger rig for these Musky in the Susquehanna. Over the years, I've tracked and fished them with regular spinning gear and only hooked one. There's some 4-6 footers around so I decided to throw flies at em


Aside from fishing, I like to camp in the fifth wheel (travel with it when possible), spend time with my family, grill, and I'm also a moderator of a remodeling forum which is always exciting...

Welcome to the forum Todd, great to have another member join in the fun. I hope you'll stick around and contribute here, we can always use more good reading material. There is no shortage of knowledge in virtually every aspect of fly fishing imaginable. It's a really great group.

As for your favorite setup, I think it's great that you still fish with it. It obviously has special meaning to you and so long as you like it, that's all that matters.

Welcome:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Thanks! Hooked some big bass on that rod but still, thinking about a bigger set up... don't want to snap that thing on something bigger:wow:

I'll probably be doing more learning and asking questions because there's alot that I either don't know or want to know more about.

Welcome back to our side of the Pond. Not to worry about the UK Board/Fellows. A few of them are in here with me in Ward 3.:stretcher I think that's right, but they keep the door locked.

welcome from a fellow pa'er NC here along the upper pine creek. Nice rods you have.. for those musky you'll need a good 9 wt at least to throw the big stuff.
