Not sure if this the right place or if this type of introdution is allowed (moderators please feel free to move post if not in the right forum).
Well, I'd like to say hello to all the folks here on the forum and give a little bit of info about myself, as I probably will be posting and asking many questions on the forums. Not sure if any advice or info given by me will help anyone out there but I'm willing to contribute as much as possible!
With that been said I am a Colorado Native but ironically did not grow up fishing. Dad worked alot. I didn't start fishing until just a few years ago when a buddy I worked with told me he always wanted to go fishing but similarly his dad was too busy with work as well. So we decided to plunge in and buy some poles and some gear...didn't know really what we were buying at the time, but we eventually figured what worked for us and that in nutshell is how I began my journey with fishing. I have experienced some success and fished in many parts of the state. For me just being outdoors in the mountains was as good as catching the fish!
I mostly shore fish, river fish and have been ice fishing the past 3 years or so. I mostly like lure fishing on open water. I have 2 kids boy and a girl and have taken them fishing since they were around a year and a half. I now take them everychance I get and get great enjoyement sharing what I now with them.
So as to not write a book here
that is my short intro, hope to meet alot of great new friends here possibly go fishing and drink a few cold adult beverages of choice and share whatever knowledge, or conditions of where I've been as I can. I have to admit at first I use to be secretive of where and what I caught my fish on and where at, but you know as I have matured in my thinking I really don't mind sharing anything I have come to learn to someone who may find it helpful. My biggest thing now is just about being a good ethical sportsman and preserving as much as possible our great fishing resources in Colorado.
Hope to get to knowing some of you fisherman out there!
