Default Hello from New York

I'm a surfcaster who spends many a night roaming the Long Island beaches fishing for the elusive striped bass but recently caught the fly bug when I took my first trip to Salmon River, NY for Steelhead fly fishing. I'm here to learn and improve my fly fishing skills.

And my dream fly fishing trip would be to Christmas Island for GTs.
theboz and siege like this.

Welcome to the forum !
I love it here..... It's like the Radio Shack of fishing. You got questions, we got answers. There are very knowledgeable people here who will gladly share that knowledge. Ask lots of questions, and also share your wisdom and experience, too.
It's an awesome forum with awesome members, glad that you're one of them now

Welcome to the forum Bigfish, lots of good people hang out here, from all persuasions and fly fishing experience levels. Feel free to ask questions and don't forget try out the search feature, lots of good info hidden in there. One of our members is holding a raffle this month to promote his blog and guiding service in Alaska and the prizes are two great teaching books on fly fishing. All you have to do is go to the site I have posted below and just say "Hello" and no you won't be getting spam but there is lot of great stories on his blog site.

February Raffle from Life On The Line Fly Fishing;

Welcome to the Asylum! I'm told I'm kept in Ward 3 but the door is locked so not really sure.

Would love to join you chasing some 'bones' in warm water. Odd off as it may sound I've never fished for warm water fish.

Fred,

There is no bone fishing NE where I am...you have to go south. But it is on my to-do list.
