    Default hello

    Hello All,
    I am a long time saltwater fly guy that is just starting to stumble around trout rivers I currently live in N. Fairfield cty Ct. and frequently fish off of Watch Hill RI. My backround includes 9 years as a fly fishing/ light tackle guide out of Islamorada Fl. and alot of other messing about in boats.
    Looking forward to shareing info and learning more about those fickle little trouts.

    Welcome aboard Ken,

    Lots of people from all over the country (and some from Europe) that are always willing to write and to share. Hope you find this to be a very useful learning tool.

    Ken welcome to the forum-- it must have been tough to leave Islamorada - at least from a fishing standpoint, but we have lots of SW fishing to be had up here too for stripers, and there's some great fly fishing for trout in CT-- keep an eye out for CT member Riptide's posts. He's from CT and does a lot of fly fishing throughout New England in both fresh and salt.

    Hi Ken
    I missed out on going to Napatree yesterday, but next Monday the plan is to hit Ninigret in the kayaks

    Welcome to the forum Ken, lot of good folks on board here. Always interested in reading stories about the exploits of others here.

    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.
