Hello all. I have been reading posts on this board for over a year now and finally decided that it is time to join in. I have fished all my life but I have only been fly fishing and trout fishing for about a year. As my username implies I'm addicted to the sport. I purchased my first fly rod last year and I have only picked up my spinning outfits and baitcasters twice since then. There is nothing else in this world that is as relaxing as the solitude of the river. Thanks to all for the helpful information on this board. I hope that I can add some useful information.
