Default Your Family's Chance to be in New Fly Fishing Book

Tom Rosenbauer, an Orvis executive and specical guest at Troutfest 2011, is asking for help researching his new book. He is looking for great stories on successes and failures on getting families involved in fly fishing together. You can post your stories on the wall of his Facebook Family Friendly Fly Fishing page.

Never had much luck getting my whole family involved in fly fishing. Someone was always on the run from the law, in prison, or in rehab

Sounds like family reunions were a struggle to organize too.

I just sent this personal Facebook message to Tom Rosenbauer:
"Tom, Fred, the SmokyStreams.com map guy here. I posted on Byron's message board the thread "Your Family's Chance to be in New Fly Fishing Book"
http://littleriveroutfitters.com/for...ad.php?t=15392 . I thought I could get you some material, and perhaps I did. There are a lot of good "lines" on the forum and, for the most part, they are the floating type. Some... not so much. Let's just call these guys your Hillbilly Helpers. Take care."

BTW......the tattoo to tooth ratio is inversely proportional to those that flyfish and those that baitfish....not too many folks 'round my hometown had "TIGHT LINES" tatooed prison style on their knuckles!
