Real NameDave Reifsnyder
LocationEaston, Pennsylvania
Biography & ThoughtsI am a long-time fly-fisherman on local streams - Little Buskill, McMicheal, Martins, Brodhead, Lehigh, Big Bushkill, Pohopoco, Tobyhanna, upper Delaware. Not a trout bum, however, but would be given a second chance. Wrote "All Fishermen Are Liars...Believe It!" (stories and rantings from one of fishing's lesser-knowns); published it in 2006 and it's getting out there slowly but surely; reviewed by "The Fly-fishing Professor" (Johnny McJunkins at Texarkana College); I'm a retired Pharmaceutical Microbiologist and am hoping to spend more time fly-fishing and learning - always learning. Will be reading and writing more as time allows. I am looking forward to interacting with your forum members - my early readings of a few of the posts show some interesting ideas, philosophies and very decent writing style - nice!

I am, of course an avid catch and release person and would love to stop most stocking, change the kill limits to three trout per day for April and May only, after that two per day over 14 inches - and give back the fly-fishing only stretch on the Little Bushkill - it's being poached into oblivion.
