a welcome from a fellow DHC'er, haha, thanks Roper.
Now that was a great first set of posts, Aaron. You'll fit in well here me thinks.
BTW, I'm from the Chicago area, so we've probably fished many of the same spots in that region. Fishing is both better (more fast cold rivers, better scenery, year-round opportunities) and worse (sterile environment = smaller fish in most waters, not as good warmwater fishing, salmon and steelhead are mostly either Endangered or endangered). But once you get the rhythm of the region, it turns into a very nice place to wet a line. In fact, I'll send you a PM with spots to get you started now.
Hockey fan by chance Lugan? How about them Hawks eh?!!!
I'll give up spots for widgeon cape feathers. PM me for details.
I was a Blackhawks, Bulls and Bears fan for years (roughly 1980's - 2000). Best part of that was the 1986 Bears and the MJ-Bulls series of championships. It was cool to live there then.
You guys are awesome! Best welcome I've ever received on a forum. Looking forward to meeting some of you tuesday hopefully and others when time permits. Thanks again for all the tips and good words.
As several have mentioned, welcome. There are a few hockey fans around the area
I see that now! Awesome avatar (Chiefs)
I'm glad Bill Aubrey sent you a private message. He probably mentioned Puget Sound Fly Fishers. Our next meeting is Thursday Feb 14. We have lots of free classes as well.
Welcome! All my spots don't hold fish.
Welcome to one of the best sites for fly fishing in the USA. But every bodies telling you they are sending a PM. We don't use them anymore. And bad habits are hard to break. They are called "starting a conversation". Although PM was faster to say than the other longer words.
Welcome .... Beers and fly casting at my place... I even have a spare toon.
Welcome aboard mate.
I'll show ya one of my favorite spots.
You'll have to come to the dry side.
Then when you find some favorite spots for SRC's I'll drive to the wet side.
Sounds like a great trade off! Im assuming SRC's means Sea run Cutt's. still new at the western world of fishing.
