    Default Wisconsin & Florida

    Since I've posted a few times, I should introduce myself. We live in Madison, Wisconsin during the summer, and since retirement we spend winters in SW Florida. I am a high mileage fly fisherman - something like 50 years now. During the summer, I fish the Driftless area of Wisconsin on a regular basis, and do quite a lot of saltwater fishing when in Florida. We also make annual trips to Montana, and I do have the opportunity to do some other fly fishing travel, particularly since retirement.

    Hey driftless22,

    I also lay claim to the "high mileage" label. It's been 55+ years since my introduction to wrangling a fly, and I don't plan on stopping ending time soon. Sure, the "body" shows a lot of wear and tear, and the "tires" don't have as much tread as they once did. But, the "power train" still has the desire to push on, even if it overwhelms the "engine" at times.

    Luckily for this aging "heap," it's been stored well during the winter months, and shows only a bit of "rusting" around the edges. May we all be blessed enough to end up with "high miles," even if the occasional "rebuild" is necessary...

    By the way, welcome to the finest fly-fishing forum on the planet!

    Jerry, aka hairwing530
