Hello from Indiana,

I just registered on the message board today and I am not even sure this is the place to post a new message. Assuming it is "hello" fellow fly fishermen and women. Living in Indiana and loving to fly fish for trout puts me smack in the middle of nothing.

I have fished the Smokies for the past 5 years and love every minute of it. I usually get down that way 3 or 4 times a year, more if I could make it. The folks at LRO have made me feel more than welcome and have given help whenever I asked. A good reason to patronize your local fly shop, you won't get this help in many catalogs. We make a few trips to Michigan every year and enjoy those northern streams also. I love those Brookies no matter where they live.

I'll post this and see if I can find it. Otherwise I am just checking out the postings and trying to learn the system. We will be making our first trip of the year in late March. I hope the conditions are right for some stress relief. Either way we will be pounding a few spots.

gary <*))))><

Geerona, Thank you for the kind words about LRO and for your support of our store. Welcome to the board and site. I like fishing in Michigan too. That is a wonderful state with great streams and rivers. Hope to see you soon.

I echo the kind words above and would add that you, Paula, and Daniel along with the rest of the staff are in my estimation, "The Model" for how any succesful business ought be conducted. I am looking forward to my next visit with you guys, hopefull in a few short weeks :).
