Well, I hate to admit it, but I know little to nothing about fly fishing. Or maybe just enough to be dangerous to others with a fly rod. Hope to be visiting soon for a lesson if Ted can get it arranged.

I have grown up fishing here on our 3rd generation farm. Now I am the only one left here so I get to fish alone until the 4th generation is conceived, hopefully soon. :smile: We have about 5 acres of water, but no trout. So bream and bass are my only catch. It almost seems too easy here. I sure it will be much more challenging in the stream.

I piddle around restoring an 85 CJ7 when I am not fishing. Fly tying is what I am really interested in, but I hate to put the cart before the horse. So, that is about it. Nice to meet you guys / gals.

Hi Hutch,

Welcome to the board. You will learn a lot here. I started fly fishing in ponds and I still love doing it. Sounds like you have a nice one. Next week I'll spend 5 days doing nothing but bluegill and bass fishing. Thanks for joining us.

Good to have you with us Hutch. It is a beautiful transition from the pond to the stream and back again. All fish have their uniqueities. Sure Knots, Monk
