I've been contemplating this for awhile. I've been an avid angler, fly angler & fly tier for most of my life, and feel a need to share some of what I've learned. Hopefully, it will help someone else along their road to learning about this wonderful sport & hobby.
I'm also still learning, and perhaps through this blog will be able to add a few ideas from others who share this passion.
Besides fly fishing, and tying, I'm also an avid lure maker. I enjoy making all types of tackle, and as such feel it has aided me in my endeavors as a fly angler, and visa versa. Learning is never a one way street. I believe I am a better angler because I've learned things in many aspects of angling.
As this blog progresses, I hope it to include as much as possible about my experiences in the sport of fishing, and how it relates to fly fishing, fly tying and more specifically to fishing in tidal waters.
I am first & foremost a warmwater & tidalwater angler. A blue collar angler for the most part. My primary experience has been with waters in the mid Atlantic states, and it is there I will try to focus most of my discussion.
I occasionally visit coldwater environments, but not as much as I would like. I'll include some information for some of the local waters I've fished and where I've had success.
I sincerely hope you'll join me & share some time with me in the World of Tidewater Fly Fishing & Tying!
