Good evening,
A faithful reader of my blog told me about this site. In an attempt to spend even more time online, I thought I would check it out.

I took up fly fishing after getting divorced. Next to having kids, it's the most magnificient and frustrating thing I've attempted. I couldn't stop now even if I wanted to.

I'm nearing the end of my first season. I caught my first fish ever in March on a Pink Squirrel I tied myself. I love to fish the small creeks in SW Wisconsin and SE Minnesota with my 3 wt. I love small trout with big attitudes.

I still have much to learn. I hope you all will put up with my silly questions.

Yes, you're right. Before we lost some threads in a crash, there was a story here about Tick Pond.

I gotta get to this Tick Pond. Fishing seems to be worth the drive.

I tried to send you a PM re Tick Pond (and others), but I can't see that it got through. Please let me know whether you received it.
