Thanks for the excellent advice. I will contact Clark and go from there.

BTW, I have been lurking on this site for a long time, having been introduced to it by QRR, who is one of the best fly fishermen I know. We live in the same town and fish together.

I have been fishing and tying flies for well over 50 years, so now you know that I'm just an old coot. Started tournament casting at the ripe old age of 14, and moved on from there.

Was a trout and bass fisherman for years, and when I moved to the Gulf Coast, started a charter boat business (thankfully out of the business now), and started learning the fine art of fishing the salt, both blue water and the bays.

Am finally old enough to see all the stuff I DON'T know about fly fishing, casting, and tying flies. A real learning experience. But I will hang in there and when I'm 100 plus, I'll probably feel that maybe I'm starting to get the hang of it all...

What a great site y'all have here. Glad I joined and look forward to meeting the crowd, learning a lot, and hopefully add in my 2-cents worth now and then.
