I've been lurking for far too long on the site and just recently became a member. I have been fishing since a young age even doing the competitive bass tournament scene for a while. That got too hectic and I focused mainly on trout and steelhead on the fly in the Upstate and Central NY regions. I moved out to the West Coast for work and find myself not fishing as often because the traffic is soooo bad. So to get my fix in I I spend more time at the vise, tying primarily trout patterns but some carp and striper as well. Really enjoy tying the competition style nymphs lately. Looking forward to continuing my education as I go farther down the rabbit hole of fly tying.
If anyone is in the Bay Area, I'm always looking for new people to fish and new places to try if you have suggestions.
