Hello all. I'm a retired old geezer that lurks among the Jersey Pines , fly rod in hand, in search of toothy critters. Love tying flies. .

don't know about the lizards but I know the bugs are.  My motorcycle helmet can attest to that. (And excuse me site administrator, but I am NOT no "Bait Fisherman"   :o)
