New Member...wanted to say hello!

Hello everyone. Just joined the board and wanted to introduce myself. I just got into fly fishing this year and I have been easily consumed by this sport. Always fished since I was young and I asked the wife and kids for a different "Fathers Day" gift this year (usually its golf) and I am very glad they remembered. Anyway I can't get enough.

I live in Frederick, Md and was raised in Western Pa (Ebensburg) to be exact. My parents recently relocated to Gettysburg to be closer to us and I got my "Pop" into it to. Took about 2 minutes on the Monocacy about a month ago. Needless to say, my 71 yr old father is probably worse off than me. But it's been great to fish every weekend with him.

Have "lurked" on the board for a little bit and have been wanted to come up to south central and see what it has to offer. With the research I have done...it looks great. Been mainly concentrating on "smallies" but open to any suggestions you all may have.

Well that's me. Look forward to getting to know some of you in the future.

Tony

Welcome Tony. I'm in your neck of the woods and fish south central PA and Frederick Co MD pretty extensively.
Might see you around Boiling Springs or the Potomac River.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I am amazed at all the great fishing Pa. has to offer. Feel kinda stupid after bait and spin casting all these years, I wish I got into fly a lot sooner. Well better late than never...but I am having a blast.

I "used" to play a lot of golf as a hobby and now, if given the choice, rather be in my waders and on the river. What a wonderful sport.

Tony
