I joined FAOL about 7 years ago when I knew nothing except that I wanted to take up fly fishing when I retired. I generally looked at the site most days (still do) and learned a lot. I owe you guys a huge THANK YOU for getting me started down this path. Eventually I learned enough to ask some questions, and now I sometimes feel I have something useful to contribute. Now I fish and tie flies, I've built a couple rods - haven't been brave enough to take on boo yet - and have even furled a few leaders. Again, with thanks for the inspiration and information I've gotten from FAOL. This site is a terrific resource! Hopefully I can give something back now and then, but mostly I'm still lurking and learning most of the time.
