Just joined yesterday, looking fwd to reading posts from other fly fishers.
I started flyfishing back in about 1944 with a 25cent bamboo rod. Thought myself to refinish it. Started tying flies in about 1946. Had a big lapse with Air Force and raising a family. Did a lot of spin fishing in between. Got back into flyfishing in 1988 and have been at it ever since. I used to fish almost every day that I could. Moved from N.J. to Arkansas in 1994 on the White River. I fished about every day for a few hours till health problems are keeping me from getting out on the water. Back in Jersey most of my fishing was for Warmwater species. Here in Arkansas I fished mostly for Trout as one of the best Trout water is right in my back yard. I also fished a lot for Smallmouth on Crooked Creek that is just ten minuets from my house.
I still tie a about four shows a year but I miss the big shows back east.
We have a big tying show here in Arkansas in March called The Sowbug Roundup. Stop by and say Hello if you happen to make that show.
Always happy to talk Bamboo rods and Airplanes.

Tuholer: Welcome to the forum! You definitely live next to a great trout stream, one of these days I will make it down there. I have heard of the Sowbug Roundup, wish we had something like that here in Wyoming.

Fond memories of the white river and mt home in general

my grandparents and uncle retired out there

love to see some photos and some reports from that "neck of the woods"

i think my fondest memory was stopping at a diner and the way to the river, walking in the door, and everyone who was seated already greeted us as we entered. people would wave driving past you on the road.

****that type of hospitality is so foreign here in Chicago****

oh yeah, and the trout

Welcome
