  • Fly Fishing

    I am a fly fishing addict. My wife loves my addiction, because she feels it helps keep my "alive" and relaxed. In fact we are going to Western Maryland this weekend to do some fishing and celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.

    Fishing gets you out in the frest air, you do get some exersize and it's fun

          Re: Fly Fishing

          Ralph, so what do you do with the fly when you catch it and is there a limit on those?? :P
          I love fishing, any kind of fishing, I live on a lake and the fish in the lake are Walleye, Bass and Musky.
          There really is nothing better than being on the lake early in the morning when the water is dead calm, quite and the sun is just coming up or going down.
          Yes, very relaxing, trouble is as I'm writting this it's snowing like ****.
          Good luck in Maryland.
          Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
          So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
          Good luck and stay well.
