Many Thanks for the great response info on my Thread. I live in Perry Hall Maryland, NE section of Baltimore County. I am 4 miles south of the Big Gunpowder River and 6 miles south of the Little Gunpowder River.
I like the suggestion about joining a local club. This will help me in the learning process (have a lot to learn) and help me connect with fellow fly fishermen who may invite me to go fishing with them.
I have hunted and fished most of my life and mainly as a loner just to get away from the masses & daily grind. But now that I am older, I like the idea of mingling with folks who share common interest. But there arn't many oldster hunters & anglers around. Many of the Oldsters guit hunting & fishing due to physical limitations or health problems.
There are a lot of sportsman around but most are several generations my junior. I just can't seem to relate to their modern view of life in general and the new way of talking, dude, bro, hook-up etc. What ever happened to "sir" and "mam," or just calling someone by their name.
My solitude in my younger years has evolved me into a "grumpy Ol' man." I am not really grumpy, I just tell it like it is, not afraid to speak my mind and political correctness be "damned."
Probably said too much, should change my forum name to OLD BIGMOUTH!
