    Default Hello from Cowabunga.

    Hey there fisher folks,

    It's an old story you've read too many times. I've been browsing this forum for a while and decided now is as good a time as any to jump in.

    I'm third generation Californian who hails from a long line of long rodders, going back to our family roots in Sweden. I'm mostly retired these days, which I spend cycling, running or Trekking for Trout and other species. Feel free to call me a fair weather fly fisher, since I've been known to travel a thousand miles out of my way on a spur of the moment fishing trip, just to avoid an approaching cold front. For me, it's not always about the fins, sometimes it's about the rays!

    While I don't care much to reminisce about my work a day life. I spent the majority of it in and around the fly business in several roles, but that's behind me now. That's not say that I don't enjoy talking about gear, rigging and I'm not opposed to offering up a few regional pointers to someone whose headed this way. ( Central Sierras, west to the central CA coast. )

    So here's a hearty hello to you all,
    Trout Trekker - Dave

    Dave: Welcome to the forum! Be sure to post some fishing reports from your travels, we would love to hear about them. You should have some great opportunities for fly fishing over in your part of CA.
