Hello to all. I am relatively new to flyfishing and tying, only getting serious over the last 5 years. I am originally from Florida but now live in Minnesota and belong to two flyfishing clubs, "Minnesota Flyfishers" predominantly trout and the "Flychuckers" a mixed bag of all including warmwater species. We fish mainly for Smallmouth, Largemouth, Northerns, Muskies, Sunnies and yes we even catch Walleyes on fly up here. We all enjoy trips to saltwater destinations also. The trout fishing is also quite good in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The only problem with living here is going through the long winters without fishing. I really enjoy tying flies and I believe it adds a lot of satisfaction to catch fish on a fly you have tied yourself. I also build my own rods now and really enjoy this hobby. I look forward to learning and sharing experiences with all of you and am certainly willing to pass on any knowledge that I have with respect to this wonderful sport.
