    Default Moving On

    We move out of the Poconos for good tomorrow.

    Sort of a mixed emotion day for me. It's always nice to go somewhere new, but I've developed a real attachment to this area; not just because of the trout fishing, and it will be a tough move for me in a lot of ways.

    We'll be in Maine for the Summer; but with 107 boxes of "stuff" plus furniture already packed away and stored, the fishing and fly tying will not be what it has been for the past few years.

    Hopefully I'll be fully up and running again sometime in the Fall. Until then, I'll log onto NAFFF whenever I can.

    Enjoy the season, everyone. I hope there's a lot of fish in it for each and every one of you!

    Hi Allan,

    You have a lot of friends on NAFFF and you will be missed this summer. I have made two moves since I retired and both of them were mistakes. I should have stayed in Washington state.

    Allan: Having been in the military, I understand the feelings you have concerning moving from a place you have grown attached to. Hopefully, you and Marty will enjoy Maine just as much and having family closer should help with the transition. Good luck with the move!

    Allan, moving is one of my least favorite things to do.
    But once dealt with, the load is lighter, and the world opens up.
    Have a great summer, be lookin' for your posts from Maine.

    Take care Allan. Try not to think about what you're leaving and think of all those new waters you get to explore.

    Sounds exciting to me. Hope that you report on all of your new adventures. Please don't stay away from here too long. Put unpack first on a couple of those boxes.

    Pocono,

    What section of Maine are you moving to?

    Cheers,

    I have always loved moving, new places where my senses are no longer dulled by familiarization, new trails my boots have not touched and trout unaccustomed to my habits.

    Have fun with it Allen and this winter when the dogs warm by the fire and you warm from the good scotch...Send us your stories.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
