Hello all. Long time angler here. I grew up in the NW corner of Philly, where me and my neighborhood friends were always fishing and exploring the Wissahickon Creek around Bells Mill Rd, Kitchens Lane and Valley Green. Then my parents decided to move us to the Worcester area of Montco in my teenage years. In Montco we lived along the Skippack Creek, so tons of fishing along the Skippy, Perky, Unami & Stony too with buddies. In college, I got into flyfishing and spent less time fishing the put and take streams I cut my teeth on. I found it to be the best way to fish and explore for me and it also gave me more time to fish for trout because of access to the FFO sections. I live out along the Fishing Creek in York County now, with easy access to Clarks, Donegal, Muddy, Codorus and the Yellow Breeches. I taught my kids the finer qualities of dry fly presentations, swinging wets and stripping in streamers, but now they have picked up on euro nymphing and mono rig stuff while away at college with their friends and are regularly outfishing me when there's no hatch occurring. So, I figure I'd join a place to learn some updated tactics, so that this doesn't happen as frequently; or maybe I'm just going to learn how to do the euro nymphing/ mono rig thing too; or only go fishing with them for the evening hatch like we used to do, but I don't want to limit time spent doing the hobby we love with my loved ones.
