Default Another new guy here too...

Hey all-

I'm also new to the forums here. Just discovered it. I've been on a variety of others before, most likely using the same handle. I mostly lurk, but post on occasion if I think I can help out with the discussion.

I've been fly fishing, fly tying, and wrapping my own fly rods for the last 30+ years. Still feel like a noobie at it all.

I'm currently living out in sunny Southern California, just 10 minutes from Disneyland. I fly fish everywhere from the smallest creeks to the Pacific Ocean...and for any species that'll take a fly.

My most memorable trout on the fly was an 18" Brown Trout, caught on a black size 22 midge larva, on Hot Creek in the Mammoth Mountain area in the Eastern Sierra's of California.

My most memorable Bass (largemouth) was about 3 lbs on a Clouser Minnow at Barrett Lake in California.
