    Default Another PA fella! (take 2)

    I first posted my intro in the UK forum so I'm just doing a copy and posting one here since that was the original intention:

    Hi everyone! My name is Todd and thought I'd join the forum here.
    I own a remodeling business in the Harrisburg, PA area (Enola based) so alot of my time is absorbed with just that.

    Before my own business I was employed for an eternity and the never ending stress is what got me away from fly fishing and fishing in general even though my fifth wheel camper is at a campground on the Susquehanna.
    Obviously, being a business owner takes on a whole new and different line of stress, I've picked the rods back up to keep myself sane I'm planning on doing a lot more fly fishing again, already been out and gearing up with some odds and ends that I need.

    I've been thinking about getting some new gear to add to the collection. Right now for trout, I use a Berkley 5w rod with Martin reel and for bass I have a vintage set up (don't laugh because I love it...) an early 80's Diawa Rod with a K-Mart 333 reel. That was my first fly rod handed to me by my pap so I will always have it, learned on it and still use it. I'm thinking of stepping up to a bigger rig for these Musky in the Susquehanna. Over the years, I've tracked and fished them with regular spinning gear and only hooked one. There's some 4-6 footers around so I decided to throw flies at em


    Aside from fishing, I like to camp in the fifth wheel (travel with it when possible), spend time with my family, grill, and I'm also a moderator of a remodeling forum which is always exciting...

    Welcome to the forum Todd, great to have another member join in the fun. I hope you'll stick around and contribute here, we can always use more good reading material. There is no shortage of knowledge in virtually every aspect of fly fishing imaginable. It's a really great group.

    As for your favorite setup, I think it's great that you still fish with it. It obviously has special meaning to you and so long as you like it, that's all that matters.

    Welcome

    Welcome
    Thanks! Hooked some big bass on that rod but still, thinking about a bigger set up... don't want to snap that thing on something bigger

    I'll probably be doing more learning and asking questions because there's alot that I either don't know or want to know more about.

    Welcome back to our side of the Pond. Not to worry about the UK Board/Fellows. A few of them are in here with me in Ward 3. I think that's right, but they keep the door locked.
