    Default another newby! and he's english!

    Hi all.

    I am a sea and freshwater fisherman. although, I would like to take up the noble art of fly fishing at some point in my life. At present I only 'Dream of casting the fly.' Naturally, as I am only dreaming I can cast easily and catch trout every cast. But, for the time being I am here for the pleasure to be found in your forum.
    You look to be a great crowd although looks can be deceptive. I like a bit of humour. Life is too short to get too serious.
    Yours Sincerely, cb1 (Refined English Gentleman and retired failure/procrastinator.)

    Hi cb1,

    Welcome to the forum. Maybe we can get you to give fly fishing a try. If you read some of the post you will see fly fishing is not just about catching fish. Fly fishing works well in fresh and salt. I suggest you visit a local fly shop and ask them to demonstrate how to fly cast. They will even let you give it a try. You will be surprised at how easy it is with a little help.

    Then there is fly tying. Many very good fly tiers don't fish. I know that sounds funny but it is true.

    Thanks for the welcome Frank, I look forward to joining in.
    Fly tying I am not sure of as I am all thumbs, and a menace with glue and sticky stuff.
    But, I do like the artistry of a nice fly. I look forward to some good banter to make the coming cold winter nights enjoyable.
    Thank you again,
    Roy. (cb1)

    Scotsmen (Apparently) wear nothing under the kilt.
    True Englishmen NEVER EVER wear womens silk undergarments! My Goodness Sir! who would spoil the look of a nice summer frock by having silk underneath!
    No Sir! I prefer the rough woollen Bloomers myself!
