We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I love nymph fishing. I learned a lot from Gary Bolger - I spent a couple of days with him learning his nymphing techniques along the Farmington.
Steelhead are a lot of fun.
Miss New England trout streams in the Spring. We have a brown trout fishery here in the Midlands of South Carolina - tailraces of Lake Murray and Lake Hartwell. Decent size - about 8 inches and 10 ounce weights are pretty common, but it's just not the same. :)
