Greetings:

I have been browsing the WWW for a good Fly-Fishing Site for sometime when I came across this site and found it comfortable... like an old fly shop where fishermen chatted about the catch and the flies they tied. Actually, itís even better than that; so many aspects are covered here in detail. Aquatic entomology, fishing methods and tying are just a mouse click away. Not to mention the very fine photo images I have seen here.

I began Fly-Fishing in 1979; I had been bait and lure fisherman since 1960 but once I learned how to cast and land fish, I gave up the bait and lures. I have enjoyed fly-fishing immensely and fished every Westside River on the CA Sierras from Bakersfield to Alturas and a number of coastal rivers for Steelhead.

I look forward to hanging around this site, learning more... and meeting new people who share this wonderful art.

Ciao,

Don

That is a great way of describing how I felt right away here myself , being new to the site as well , I've had my share of a few other sites , just never had that " feel". Either to " clique" or just not to friendly , we've all been doing this awhile , tying, fishing , most started as kids/w a can of worms, then spinners and plugs , and as time, money allowed we moved to a Fly rod , being newbto a sight doesn't imply we haven't tied a fly or made that perfect cast , just means we haven't met everyone here yet , grab you're coffee, get you're vice and let's talk Flies, and patterns. :)
