Thread: A Little SLow

  1. #1

    Default A Little SLow

    Just found the member introduction threads in the "Back at the Lodge" forum. Let me introduce myself.

    65 year old, retired twice, living with my wife of 41 years who encouraged me to return to fly fishing last year after a long absence. First thirty years, worked for a public utility. Then worked as a cabinet/furniture maker till I became allergic to the dust.

    I tie my own flies (rather badly) and fish them to anything that will bite. Was introduced to trout fishing on vacation last summer. Had so much fun, I traveled twice last fall to Douthat State Park, VA. to feed the new addiction. Living east of I-95 the water here about is usually too warm for trout. They do however, stock a local fishing pond during the fall and spring.

    Don't worry possum point. My wife is happy to get me out of the house fishing now and then and after 42 years this August I guess she needs the occasional break. And as long as your flies catch fish who cares What they look like?!

There are folks here who can assist you with every aspect of fly fishing including improving your tying.;-) I look forward to reading your posts and hopefully seeing pictures of the fish you catch.

    Hey Possumpoint just saw your intro-- welcome to the forum, glad to have on board here. It sounds like you've been having some fun tying and chasing trout but it sounds like a haul to get to decent trout country (it is for me too).

    Anything else that might be closer like smallmouth or largemouth? They'll give your fly rod a work out.

    And keep your eye out for our fly swaps-- we'll be running a bunch more soon-- everyone is always welcome to jump in regardless of experience, so if you see one that floats your boat, just holler.

    "I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...because only in the woods can I find solitude without lonliness..."
