OK.....I lied!

I really wasn't going to post anything until I caught a trout fly-fishing but I just saw that I surpassed 1000 page views.

Now I know there are many others with many, many more pages views than that and certainly more followers but still I was pleasantly surprised by that number. Honestly, I started this blog not to get the most hits, the most followers, to espouse some preference of fly-fishing over spin casting, etc. but to find some people who would take pity on a newbie and point me in the right direction. I can say without hesitation that that has happened and I will be eternally grateful to those who have shared their knowledge with me. The only thing that I can do in return is to pass along that generosity to others when they express an interest in this sport.

I can only hope that people will continue to stop by and read about my adventures after I actually catch a trout.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by and please comment when the mood strikes.


  1. Congrats on the milestone! If your trying for a first fish, pan fish will hit anything and like to hook themselves. Just think of it as practice for the trouty Big Game. Good Luck!

  2. The mood struck me while I was reading...really...I couldn't help myself. Congrats it only gets better. Well, maybe a little better when you catch that elusive trout.

  3. Thanks Anthony. I appreciate the suggestion and welcome aboard.

    Howard...thanks for the all the advice and the congratulations. I can't wait to get out there.

    I found a few other rivers not to far from my house (~15 miles) that look very promising. I found them reading one of the local blogs I follow.

    The river by my house has stocked rainbows but I have read from more experienced fishermen (yes RD they were men) that there are brown and brookies in there. Time will tell if that is true.
