Thread: New Member, Massachusetts

    Hi guys,

    I joined the forum back in November, but I wasn't around for most of the winter, so I just got back to visiting the forum again. I figured I would introduce myself and become an active member.

    I live in Northern Central MA and picked up fly fishing about 2 years ago while I was working in Alaska. I have fished my whole life, but I decided that I wanted to pick up fly fishing and figured what better place to do it than in Alaska. I was lucky enough to be working with a very knowledgable guy who basically showed me everything I know. Well I am hooked! I started tying flies shortly after and now I am addicted to that as well. I don't know if I will pick up a spinning rod again. haha

    Anyways I frequent the Swift River in MA along with the Millers, Quinnie, and Stillwater.

    It's great to be apart of such a great and knowledgable forum!

    Welcome! I am just a little south in RI and fished the Swift all winter. Now that spring is here I will be focused on stripers but will still stray towards MA from time to time not only for salt but for trout as well, especially trying to find wild trout streams.

    Welcome to the forum! I guess it couldn't get any better than to learn to fly fish in Alaska.
