    Default Hello from Rhode Island

    Hey guys! My name is Alex, I am 23 from Rhode Island. I have been bass angling and surf casting for stripers for almost as long as I can remember. I am just now getting in to fly fishing (and tying) although I have had an interest in it for quite some time now. I am really in to the politics and conservation of the striped bass and plan on taking my trout fishing to the same level. I am looking forward to spending some time on here and getting to know some of you.

    Welcome woodpro! I would ask where you were from, but I guess Rhode Island pretty much narrows it down! milt.

    hey Woody,
    I was a resident of the 'biggest little' for years but now live just over the state line in CT.
    It's been a long time since I fished the Wood. Even when I lived in RI I trout fished here in eastern CT more often.
    Now I travel back to RI to fish the shore. Maybe I should have stayed put.

    Hi Alex,

    Welcome to NAFFF and thanks for becoming a member. I hope you enjoy your time on NAFFF and share in your fly fishing adventures. You might want to consider adding a location to your profile.

    Thank you all for the warm welcomes! I am looking forward to do a lot of fly fishing this year and will be sure to share pictures as well as trip reports as I plan on trying to get a lot of river time in the back country of Maine as well as NH, VT and PA.

    Rip Tide, I definitely plan on fly fishing for blues and striper in the future but it will probably have to wait until next season as the RISAA saltwater show drained my pocket and I just bought a TFO Lefty Kreh pro series rod and G loomis reel today. I was planning on getting my MA fresh water license since they have no closed trout season so I could start fishing right away instead of waiting for April 9th. Would it be worth it to get my CT license instead? I may get my MA license as well to fish in Western Mass but if I am better off getting CT first I will do that.

    I am spending a ton of time looking at trail maps and satalite images to try to scout out some spots on the rivers. I plan on also going on some hikes probably starting this weekend to scout the rivers.

    Welcome to the site Alex, we all look forward to seeing and reading about your adventures. Also I highly recommend that you spend some time in the search option, there are a lot of good stories and info hidden in there.

    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.
