And feel free to jump in on fly swaps if any interest you- everyone is always welcome regardless of experience.
Definitely hooked! I actually just finished up 24 flies for my first fly swap. I will definitely be on jumping in on more of those.

Welcome. If your work brings you to the Boston area, let me know. I"ll take you fishing in the salt for stripers. Don't worry about the equipment, you can use some of mine.

Take care,
Heck yeah! I inevitably end up in that area nearly once a year. I am bidding on a few projects that way as I speak. I'll keep you posted!!
