Man, I love Dusty Rhodes.  Besides that, total noob here, still trying to figure out how to get the thread through the bobbin.  It's slow goings and I thought this forum seemed apropos.  

 

Was lucky enough to cut my teeth fly fishing out in E. Idaho and SW Montana ( mainly the S. Fork Snake, Madison, Teton, Bitch Creek & Gallatin ) back from 02-05.  Currently located five minutos from the tail end of the Hooch DH section, I'd prefer to be gettin' lost up on the Chattooga and it's tribs or chunking #1/0 mouse patterns at midnight up on the SOHO but ain't complaining.  

 

In layman's terms, I live just outside of Atlanta and love to hit up all of the N. GA, NC & TN streams when possible ( which is rare these days due to a pair of 5 & 7 year old knuckleheads ).  Fortunate to always have the Hooch as a fall back... 

 

Thanks for having me, folks!  cheers.gif

 

Cheers,

Been there during "rush" hour. I feel for you! My wife & I moved here to SC last year, one reason being we got tired of the traffic in MD. I'm in Manning, near Lake Marion.

A traffic jam here is 3 cars! laugh.png

 

I'm primarily a warmwater & salt angler, but I've tied & fished trout flies plenty of times. Anything I can help you with, feel free to ask!

A pair of 5 and 7 year olds. Does that mean twin 5 year olds and twin 7 year olds like 4 kids? Welcome to the site.

Thanks for the warm welcome, folks. Ha- a pair of twins. That makes my head spin faster than it already is- we've got two boys,
5 & 7.

Have a nice evening...

Welcome to the site, Dream.
