I'm a retired National Park Ranger that is now rediscovering fly fishing. I was an avid fly fisherman from the time I was 8 until I got out of high school. Then work and raising a family took over and I moved away from trout streams.

Now that I'm retired I'm rediscovering the joy and grace of trout fishing. I'm hoping to start tying my own flies and I've finally located a local group of folks who seem willing to indulge a lot of questions.

I look forward to learning from all of you and hopefully being able to share as well as I progress in this wonderful hobby!
Tight Lines,

Hey, it's good to see another Missouri trout fisherman on here! If you're in Richland, I'd just bet we fish quite a few of the same streams. I do quite a bit of of my trout fishing in the spring creeks not too far from there, around Rolla.

I'll be looking forward to your posts!

Welcome. We are a pretty diverse lot here and never short of opinions, but willing to share...

The help of your local group will get you back to speed and maybe we can fill in any gaps.

Its a great pastime this obsession of ours. Welcome back!
