Who introduced you to fly fishing?
Can you tell us a little about your home waters and the fish you pursue there?

What you like most about Thomas and Thomas rods? Which rods do you fish?
I fish the solar series which is a fast smooth casting rod. It's soft enough for short quick casts but has tons of punching power for reaching out and touching em further from the skiff.
