Hey guys, Another "newb" here. I am just starting to get into the fly fishing world as of a few weeks ago. I had always kinda wanted to try fly fishing, and I went camping with a buddy and his boss and his boss happened to bring a couple of his outfits with him. While we were on the boat, I got to use his for about an hour and managed to get about 1/2 dozen bluegill in the boat on my first time with a fly rod. I really enjoyed it and it has got me wanting my own outfit. Anyways, Thats my intro and look forward to chatting and hopefully learning a few things from you guys.

Bubba you have came to a great place to get some info on this great sport. I too, just took up the sport 5/6 years ago and this forum has been
a tremendous amount of help. Some really knowledgable folks here that
are really super guys. I too live in Tazewell, not many folks in our area fly
fishermen that I know but feel free to shoot me an email at(gregsstuff@netcommander.com) sometime and maybe we can throw a fly. I fish the Clinch on a regular basis, don't catch a lot, but love it just
the same.
Just holler if I can help anytime.:smile:
