Hello - My name is Aaron. I've been lurking here reading articles and posts for a while and have decided to join the fun.
My Grandfather taught me to fish when I was a wee tyke (I'm 35 now), and some of this education was fly fishing. I learned a few fly fishing techniques but most of what I did was rod and reel.
My grandfather passed away two years ago and left me his old bamboo rod (nothing too special, I think it may be a Twin Forks or something he got from a catalog years ago). The rod needs work, so when I get some dough together I'll have to find someone to rehab it. It's a big water rod though as my Gramps lived on the banks of the Mohawk in NY. He also left me a few hundred bucks to be used, you guessed it, for fishing gear.
So over a year or two I've got a decent beginners kit and I try and get out at least once a month. I live in Baltimore city, about a half hour from the Gunpowder River and I do most of my fishing there. The thing is, I'm just not catching much. When I do catch something, it's a small little thing. I' going to try and join the local TU chapter that has a mentor program and try to get some tips. I also enjoy reading about fishing (almost as much as the act itself...almost).
So, I have lots of questions and plan on using this board as much as I've been using my local fly shops boards. This means checking in at least once a day.
Well, I think that about sums it up
