Hello Hello

Greetings to all those I have enjoyed reading about and learning from for the past while. I have been lurking here for about a year. It was only about 4 years ago when I started fly fishing and lost all my spinning gear and didn't really care to look for it. I spend most of my summer and fall chasing stripers around the northshore of MA. I am a merchant marine officer who calls Diego Garcia home for usually around half the year. I also have been fortunate enough to make a few trips up to Doaktown for some salmon with my father in law. It is there where I first threw a fly and caught the bug. I will back throwing flies in the Chagos in a couple of days and I will be sure to post up some pics as the bones, GT's and trevallly begin to bend my rod and expose my backing . I am also a pretty devoted skier, here is a link to my last trip to Diego Garcia as viewed on the TGR forums.

I Hope to get to fish with some of you and contribute in the future.
