I'm new to the area and to this forum. My wife & I retired last fall and moved to Loudon, TN from Winston-Salem, NC so my fly fishing has just changed from the East to the West slope of the Smokies.
I have loved fly fishing for many years and now that I am retired, I hope to devote more time to the sport and to couple it with my new kyaking hpbby. Warm water or cold, it doesn't matter to me as I am happy chasing a bluegill or a trout.
I look forward to meeting some of you on-line and in person. I did meet a couple of the nice folks at LRO this past monday as I travelled there to pick up some tying materials and to see if a full blown fly shop actually does still exist - too many have disappeared in the past few years.
