    Default New Member From West Virginia (FlySlinger)

    Hi my User name is FlySlinger my real name is Frank W Zervos
    I guess I am Introducing myself.. I think I would have introduced my self a while ago, but I am not to swift with a computer you should have seen what a tough Time I Had posting some of my photo's....lol I almost gave up...I sent this once before and it just vanished.... Because I don't know where I am sending this.....Any way I will tell you a little about myself....I am a West Virginian....I am a born raised Hillbilly....I Lived Quit a While in Rutherford NJ Where I took my first fly Tying lessons
    in Clifton NJ, TU sponsored This... What fond Memories I Have from that time...Made many friends some have just Drifted away with the Wind....I was most strongly Influence in my Flytying By Winnie and Mary Dette, and Joe Messinger This a Different Story...Every time I would go and Visit in Roscoe, I would go over to the House on cottage street I Think I was a pain in the butt ....Hmm I wonder if Mary still remembers me...I Gave Her Two Hair Bugs If you where to remind her of those I am sure she would remember me....I gave her a Messinger Frog and a Poor Bills Whampous Cat.....Yea I can't see her not remembering that......LOL Well I hope she is still doing well....

    Then I moved back home to West Virginia and I Have been tying Fly's ever since....

    Hi Frank,

    Great job of breaking the ice (as we say in Alaska) welcome to the forum. I was born in Pennsylvania but have migrated several times and finally made my home in AK. I will look to see your flies, we have a forum called Share Patterns. I will bring a thread regarding posting pictures back to the board so you may be able to figure out how to do it.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Hi Frank,

    I am from Buckhannon, WV. I currently live in Richmond, Va.
    I love to fish the Cheat River, Seneca rocks area, and the Cranberry river. I fly fish... that may be an understatement LOL.

    Thanks for looking through my galleries.

    Great to see another WV guy here.
    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
    What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?
