Default Hello I'm New Here..

Stumbled across these forums and I knew I had to join. Seems like a very good place, with lots of good people. I'm still a rookie, even though I've been fly fishing for the past 5-6 years.

I went on a day trip yesterday down south to a local creek on the Kanakee River (Illinois) and I caught some hogs and probably my largest smallie ever.

Welcome aboard shug11, and thanks for making me home sick for PA (I miss those river smallies).

Welcome to the Asylum! As long as we're kept on our 'Med's' we're harmless. But do go back into your user CP and plug in your 'location.' Most helpful if you post future questions.
