    Hello everyone. I have joined this forum and wanted to tell you a little about myself. I've been flyfishing and fly tying for 11 years now and still enjoy it just as much as when I started. I started out fishing catch and release streams and then moved to fishing for wild fish and also tailrace fish. I much prefer the tailrace fishery and go every chance I get. I live in Western North Carolina and there are many places to fish for trout. I also fish for smallmouth in some nearby rivers as well as target some large panfish in a couple of farm ponds.

    I'm looking forward to learning more about this sport as I glean from the threads your wisdom and experiences.

    Welcome. This is a heck of a good site and your off to a heck of a good start by having the courtesy of telling us a bit about yourself.
    Now that I know you live in NC we'll have to swap stories and honey-holes!
    If you're around in May, think about coming to the SE council of the FFF fly fishing festival at Western Carolina U. We have the run of the place so will have plenty of room inside and outside for classes, vendor booths, exhibits and casting galore, not to mention a trout stream running through the campus from what I'm told.
    Again, welcome. Pull up a chair, put your feet up and enjoy the campfire!

    Thanks jpb, Fred, and Jack. This place does have a good feel to it.

    Jackster,I would love to take you up on the offer of attending the fly fishing festival. Just curious .... did those nymphs work for you on the SOHO .... the ones I left under your windshield wiper?

    He's a fish magnet and ties the prettiest, gettiness flies known to man.
