New to the forum but a long time fly tyer and fisherman. Bought my first fly tying vice from Dick Stack in the early 70's when "Dick's" was a single store on the same block as my junior high school and mostly fishing tackle and live bait! Have the good fortune to live between the Chenango and Susquehanna Rivers, near the Tioughnioga and Otselic Rivers and a short trip to the Catskills. Married my college sweetheart in 1980 and we live on a small hobby farm; though we sold off the flock of Shetland Sheep we still keep chickens. Enjoy traditional bowhunting, sailing, kayaking, snowshoeing, generally getting outdoors. (Go by "Stumpkiller" on several unrelated forums).
I have been primarily a warmwater fly fisherman in the past few decades (wrote a six page article published in Warmwater Fly Fishing magazine back when it existed). Have great fun pestering smallmouth from a kayak at a local lakes and the rivers.
Am currently the business manager of a municipal wastewater treatment facility and spend my days making sure the Susquehanna River stays safe and healthy - for people AND fish.
