    Congrats! Hope you don't have any other hobbies (passions?).

    Elk hair caddis, fishing in a June snow storm by myself in central B.C. Caught fish nearly every cast. Even caught one on a back-cast.

    Poor Fella,
    He's "hooked"! He'll be reading articles on fly fishing, buying new equipment, finally believing he must have a $600 fly rod, $300 reel, and $35,000 SUV. He'll be in debt with this new hobby for years.

    Congrats. Its a great hobby.

    Keith

    Nice work fella! You will never be able to be next to water with out thinking about where your gear is. Hopefully you come prepared or deal with regret well.

    Black Wooly Bugger here! Goose Lake down by Mt. Adams in one of those $10 kiddie row boats...

    The good news is that I'm still single!
    The Bad News is that I'm single.

    Hobbys?

    Not if you count:

    Shooting Sporting Clays
    Shooting Skeet
    Rifle Shooting
    Small Bore Rifle Shooting

    Big Game Hunting
    Varmint Hunting
    Predator Hunting
    Upland Game Hunting

    Fishing,
    Trout
    Salmon
    Walleye
    Northern Pike

    I might just as soon start flyfishing. Its cheaper than shooting.


    I stopped parachuting and extreme Mountain Biking.
