Though I'm relatively new to the fly world, I have been fishing since the early '60s (my folks have a B/W snapshot of my brother and I with Zebcos in the surf at Myrtle Beach, SC from about 1964) and I'm now only 47 years young. Hopefully lots of casts left in me. Not being quite the purist yet though, as a newbie to the game you may see some unorthodox and heretical flies in my pix. Already I have managed to snap a 5 wt tip (SA rod) and wear completely out a cheap reel(SA entry level) and am getting ready to purchase a "real" reel and maybe a Sage, St. Croix or GLoomis rod or two soon. Here's a recent big mouth!
