Hi All,

I just registered and wanted to introduce myself. I've been an avid fly fisher for about 10 years now and have been tying flies and building fly rods for about 7 years. I live in California in the town of Cambria where I'm an estate manager on an 80 acre estate. I retired about 4 years ago at the young age of 55 and got really frustrated not having friends to go fishing with when the urge hit. I felt like a school kid playing hooky from school. I had all the free time in the world but all my fishing buddies still had to go to work each day. So after two years I took this job as Estate Manager for a beautiful estate on the coast. My hours are very flexible so I kinda have the best of both worlds, I go fishing when I want and get to live on a multi million dollar estate. I've been away from my fly tying bench for about two years now and am really anxious to get back to tying flies, building custom rods and hitting the local rivers. I'm a little rusty with my tying so I may be reaching out for advice.
