    Default New Guy from midwest

    Hello all, name is Stu from Kansas City. I have recently started to get back into fly fishing after about 4 years of not being able to with my life being very busy. Figured I would join up here to hopefully help out and of course learn.

    A little about me, I am 25 and recent grad from college, work as a network engineer and it has taken up a lot of my time, but it has paid off in certain areas. I now realize I am working way to much and want to enjoy my life more, so here I am.

    I have also been fly fishing since I was a little kid when my grandfather taught me how to, had to go to my mothers and dust off all my stuff, but I truly did miss it all haha can not wait to do some C&R this winter down south even ordered a new Hardy Zenith 9 5wt and will be buying a Hardy 4000DD real soon also. (I am a bit of a Hardy fan you will come to find haha)

    But yeah Hello all and hope the fishing has been good for you lately.

    Welcome to the forum, Stu!

    You're right; too much work can be bad for you; there's a good mix of work and play that keeps you going comfortably and I hope you find it.

    You're going to like your new Hardy Zenith 9'0" 5 wt. It's a good rod. I bought one 2 years ago and it's served me well. Very accurate with a nice feel casting.

    Have fun!

    Welcome. I have been here a while, but without many posts.
    That doesn't mean I haven't learned a ton of good information.
    I hope you find, as I have, what a good bunch of people live here.

    Hello Stu,

    Wellcome to this awesome forum You did the right decision to spend more time for fishing. I also worked too much in the last 10 years and I see that I fly fishing is the only time I can really switch off
    Best regards from Germany,
