Hi from Iowa

Recommended Posts

I have been a spin fisherman all of my life and was looking for a new challenge.

I found this sight about 6 weeks ago and have been lurking every day since. I have

tried some of the patterns and learned a lot. What an incredible wealth of information

and knowledge.

 

I began tying about 5 months ago and just finished building my first rod on Sunday.

I am hoping to get up to the north eastern part of the state and try some trout this summer.

With every thing to be learned here my chances will be much better.

 

Thanks Tom

Well, hullo Tom. Shoot, I could just about throw a rock and hit you from here.

 

I've only been at this a couple years and I'm pretty much a warm water guy. Got all the pieces for my first rod lying in the basement. Maybe I'll see you on the water.

 

Welcome.

GO HAWKS!!

 

I'm living in Indianapolis, but I got my degree up in Spirit Lake. I've still got lots of friends up there I visit every year in the fall.

 

Nice to have you aboard..

 

Fishy. :)
