Greetings from North Carolina! I have been fishing off and on over the years and gave up chasing Largemouth Bass with spinning and casting gear in the '90s in favor of my favorite "trash fish" Bowfin, big Cats, Carp and big Gar. Then pretty much stopped doing that for a few years. Two years ago I purchased my first fly rod and am now chasing Bass again.....along with bluegill, crappie, catfish and during my annual trip to southeast AK, Silver Salmon - 6th trip is upcoming in less than two weeks. Now that I really am getting hooked on flyfishing, the Carp, and Gar are soon to be in trouble, too. lol!
