Found this forum while looking for some info for some of the Robbinsville streams.  My name is Chris and I've lived in Asheville for 4 years now.  Ohio native but resident of AZ prior to WNC (11 years there).  I got into fly fishing simply due to all of the backpacking I've done.  My buddy was a trout guide for several years on the Togiak in AK so he showed me the ropes.  Unfortunately I still suck but have a great time.  Not a trophy fisherman at all.  I am more into getting out to new areas and catching fish that don't see a lot of flies.

I work in medical device sales so I do a lot of driving.  Now that I am a little more comfortable w/ my schedule, I've started taking my rod and some gear w/ me so I enjoy my time on the road.

In my free time I try to be outside as much as possible.  Usually that involves a mountain bike or some running.  Seems lately that means a lot more house work.  However, tomorrow that means taking a buddy to show him how to cast on Curtis.  My wife will be joining us and afterwards we plan on riding Kitsuma (near Ridgecrest on the 40).  Should be a blast.  Going to end the day w/ another mtn. biking friend and her boyfriend around the grill, hopefully w/ some smoothies (either good beer or bourbon).

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Welcome to the board.  I matriculated (drank beer) at Miami U.  So long ago that Bo Schembechler was the football coach.

Was it Heudepol or Schoenling we were drinking?

Stalk softly and carry a green stick.

Kyle actually "Walt's" is in N. Ky.     the only reason we'd venture into Oh. was to dump dead midget hookers ....and yeah.....they're the best ribs you'll ever eat  :P
