I started this blog back in late 2010 as a way to record my fishing trips and share my flies with everyone. I had actually started my blog on another forum but when they lost their server I lost my blog and decided to move elsewhere. After reading Pat Cohen's blog, I decided to switch to Blogger. I wanted to keep the blog just about fly fishing (with an occasional sinning thrown in) and fly tying. Please don't get me wrong as I am not knocking others for their blogs. Writing about politics, dogs, hunting etc just isn't my thing. Along the way I have met some great people, read some truly awesome blogs and shared some hilarious memories with others. I am not a prolific writer. I am not a funny writer any more than I am a great story teller. Most times I have to have Melissa spell check my post for me before I publish it. I tend to think faster than I type which causes me to leave out a few words here and there or use the wrong word at times. You may be asking yourself at this point, where is he going with this? Is he shutting down the blog like others have done recently? No I am not. I do understand though the need to post and how this has lead others to shut down their blogs. It does take a lot of work keeping up with this animal. I know now that I haven't done the best job but I have had fun. I saw yesterday that we lost a follower along the way but also gained some new faces. To our new faces...welcome. I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures in fishing and tying. To our lost follower....sorry to see you go. Maybe we need an exit interview? I just wanted to sit down and share my thoughts about the blog with you all. I am sad to see a few blogs recently close down but like I said, I understand it. At times I feel forced or compelled to post which I never want to have happen. This should be something fun, entertaining and little hearty. Enough with the sermon/rant. I am off the soap box now.....
