I did not scroll far enough my first time through. Just a brief introduction to this forum and its members. I am a science teacher, dad, husband, and avid angler living and fishing in Alaska. I am in Anchorage fishing for any thing that swims in non frozen water. Not much of an ice fisherman, but will fish in just about any other conditions. Transplanted to Alaska 6 years ago from Oregon. Learned to fish for trout, steelhead, and salmon in the 26 years that we lived there. Hope to learn what I can from people on this site. New to fly tying, but eager to learn and practice a new hobby.
