The name is Todd , most the time though Toad works for me, hence Toadster has become my monicker. I am 33, married with two little boys, ages four and one, so you know what I'll be doing on my weekends!
Have been fishing for, well, like most of ya'll, forever . Got my first rod when I was two and never looked back. Started fishing with flies when I was 17, but I am not too assamed to drown a worm or two, specially when the ice is on top.
I have also tied flies for quit a long time, OK 15 years now, and even have some original equipment that my great grandfather used tying flies nearly 80 years ago.
My father and I have begun building fly rods for fun the past 8 years and really like getting out there with our own handmade stuff. We haven't ventured into bamoo yet but his buddy builds them and so I can tell it won't be long 'til we bend the reed.
Trout are my favorite species, though I have never minded hooking into anything that swims. Particularly sturgeon . Wonder how you get a sturgeon on the fly?
Probably enough for now. Great to be joining an active bunch and hope to share in the knowledge that abounds on this site.
