I have been fly fishing and tying a lot of years. Fished many small streams in the State, the few rivers we have. As the legs just don't seem to take the wading and hiking now days fish ponds and lakes. I have a few friends who still take me along to fish some of the easier access streams. Which I love casting my 2 wt or 3wt (if windy) for wild brown trout.
I am Bighand since my hands are XL large and people can not believe what tiny flies come off my vise.
