Nate...your modesty overwhelms me. As I recall, you & Justin were up in Wisconsin for a musky fly fishing championship (last year or the year before(?)), (please correct me if I get anything wrong), you guys got 2nd place, & you just barely missed first place (world championship?) by inches. Congratulations on that!! It's much deserved.
I think you'll like our club. Not only do we fish, but we do conservation projects to keep the musky fishery alive & well, like wrap trees from the beavers on Strawberry, island cleanups on Motor & S'Berry, keep close tabs with the DEC, looking at a couple of big conservation projects and are pretty active with a family picnic (family invited), a spring banquet (family invited), Christmas party & multiple tournaments. All good stuff & the best club I've been in. And I belong to LOTSA, the Southtowns Walleye Assoc & ex-member Niag River Anglers. I even dabbled in TU & GL Federation of Fly Fishers for a while & this club is the best of them all, but I'm really a perch & walleye guy at heart.
There aren't a lot of musky fly fishermen in the club but it's great to see the dark side getting larger.
Hope to see you at the Feb meeting.
BTW...always enjoyed your fly-tying demo's!
I am not the Riley you speak of, but Nate, great pics, welcome, i will be trying my hand at pike on the fly this spring, i may have to quiz you sometime, all the best.
Fly Riley and Gear Riley lol
Ahhh another fly fisherman in the mix! The cabin fever is getting bad and fly tying for skis keeps it at bay.
Welcome to the club Nate!
