OK, a little about myself.

I have been fishing since childhood. Bass fishing in Santee-Cooper took up most of my leisure time when I was a teenager. I also did a fair bit of Surfcasting on the SC coast. I took a 4 year hiatus from fishing during a my stint in the USAF in Maine. I sure wish I had tried Fly Fishing while I was up in the sticks there. The least I could have done was attempt ice fishing. Oh, well, opportunity lost. I don't miss the snow. When I settled in NC a neighbor invited me on his yearly Spring trip to Cherokee fly fishing. He provided the gear and I practiced casting a little before I went. I fished nymphs that trip from early morning until the sun was setting. I caught a few fish, but, absolutely loved the scenery and challenge of wading/casting/presentation......Then, he took me somewhere and let me try a dry fly. I couldn't see it for squat. I decided that I'd have to go somewhere and learn to see a really big fly. I got directions and went up to Helton Creek and tied a huge fly on. It was there I learned to 'see' a dry fly and catch a few fish. That was some 15 years ago. I usually try to make it to Cherokee every Spring for a few days and will fish the DH streams at Stone Mountain on occasion as well. I am currently interested in spending more time on the water to connect with my teenage son.
