Hello from Pennsylvania

Hello everyone,

I just signed on, but have been using the site for info for about 4 years now. You all have helped me a lot.

I am from Central PA and have been fly-fishing (big-time) for about 7 years. Before that I just played around with the fly rod. I still spin and bait fish once in a while. I lived in Springfield in the late 80's and early 90's. and fished Tanney at the boat docks. Catch my limit and go home.

The wife and I have vacationed in Branson a few times (in the last 6 years) and I began to fly-fish it. I usually go to Branson once a year for business and usually fish for 3-4 days. I'm going to be there the end of January and can't wait to fish it again.

I already have a few friends on this board (local guys) that I have met from another fly-tying site, The Flytying forum. I wish I could fish your great waters more than once or twice a year. You folks have a great fishery; take care of it.

Greetings to Phil: (Always stop in the shop when I'm there, thanks for all the info)

Greetings to Duckydoty: See you in a few weeks

Greetings to ArkieFlyGuy: Find some sleeves for that shirt, it's cold out.

Thanks to all,

Welcome Conehead. I envy you and those Pa spring creeks. I wouldn't trade you, but at the same time I would love to be able to hit them too.

Seen you on the Fly Tying Forum also.

Welcome Conehead

Since you know Terry aleady, I won't give you the stock warning about his vivid imagination and sense of humor.

As to the information, it is truly top notch here. If you need it, one of these guys have got it.

Thanks for the notes on my "original" thread. We had a great time with that one.


Yes, I'm That Guy

Howdy, Conehead... Welcome to the forum.

As Ducky said... bring your flashlight. The fishing here is GREAT!!

As for the shirt sleeves... it still gets hotter'n hell here... even in the 55 deg water... But I'm gettin' older and more prone to gettin' chilly.

But as soon as I get over this knee surgery and Leonard and Ducky and Dano put me on a big ol' brown, I'll let my sleeves out and take another picture... ;)

Thanks for the welcome guys,


Yes the fishing is good in Central PA, But I love the white river system. Who am I kidding, I love fishing every and anywhere.


I'll bring my flashlight and a box of batteries. I should arrie in Branson early Thursday (1/25) afternoon, but then again I am flying through Chicago (last year I spent the night at the airport with thousands of others). Ducky, I plan on fishing Thursday-Monday (marathon) and possibly catch a few hours sleep as well.


Even my wife had a great laugh when I read her that thread. Glad your wife enjoys fishing more than you.


I was born and lived in Pittsburgh (Cheswick) until I was 37, moved to the midwest (MO) for five years and then lived in IL for a while. Now I live in Camp Hill and fish the Yellow Breeches, Little J, Penns Creek, and anywhere there is water. You got to make a trip back to Irwin sometime, and I'll take you fishing.


What can I say, I hope you can free up some time at the end of the month, it would be great to fish with you, I'll even bring you some sleeves. We always get a kick out of your comments on the FTF. Dude you need to write a book.


Thanks for the welcome, You all have some great water there.

I used to live in Springfield (5 yrs) and understand the ice storms. saying prayers for you all

You won't see me too often on this board, probably right before a trip to MO. It does feel good to be welcomed by "The Good OL Boys Network"
