Doc Parker, thank you for the warm wish of the Father's Day. The same to you sir. Yes, I'm a father of 3, youngest is 3 and oldest is 13, a blessed wife to deal with these monsters of mine. I'm in Riverside, California.
Doc I really don't know much about it but I found a flyrod in the barn I purchased awhile back and forgot about but tried it out last month in the pond. I found out what a sweet way to catch top water gills. I understand it works on more than top water but I haven't got that far yet. Doc feel free to get a hold of me whenever you want. Will be on Vacation next week with hopefully pictures to follow. I'm mostly going for the wife. I bought her an electric reel this year and she can't wait to try it out. She had a stroke 3 years ago and this will be her first time out on the water since that day.
