Default Another new arrival

Hello.

I'm new to the forum and just wanted to say howdy It looks like you guys a have a nice lively thing going on here!

My name is Jay and I think I mayve been born with a flyrod in my hand. I grew up in the PNW but have been in Wisconsin for the past 2 years. My addiction to this sport has taken me to many wonderful locations and my hands have dripped with quite a few beauties. From bluegill to steelhead to tarpon to marlin, it's all the same to me. I dont have to set my alarm to get up early if you know what I mean.
Photography is another passion that sometimes trumps fishing. I LOVE walking the woods during the spring bird migration and losing myself in the shutter.
My third obsession is wood working. I have recently launched a small business combining two of my favorite things on earth. Its called Flygrain.com Beautiful wood is every bit as lovely as wild trout in my eyes.
anyway... enough rambling...
I hope I can learn a few things from some of you and contribute where I can.

Jay Spencer

Hi, looking forward to seeing some photos of your tarpon, trout, muskie, or anything else you've caught.

Posted this up 'elsewhere' but the fellow is a 'machine' when it comes to the use of a single hander fly rod.

Rogue River Steelhead cringed in fear!

Welcome to the forum! I looked at your fly boxes on your website. Those are beautiful works of art. I would expect that you're sure to find some customers on this forum who appreciate that kind of workmanship. Those boxes would make great gifts for fly fishers.

Good luck with your business, and I look forward to reading your posts.

Cheers,

-VB
