Howdy,
I am originally from South Africa but have lived in the US for the past 8 years. Raleigh is my hometown now, but I am striving to get as far west from here as possible so I can fulfil my major addiction, bluelining. I seldom fish anything over a 4wt because I specialize in hitting off the beaten track places on my quest to catch big native brookies on dries. Here are some pix from a recent trip. I know some of you folks so, please feel free to let me know when you wanna go rock hopping after the brook trouts. 2010 is shaping up to be a memorable year and I hope you are having the time of your life in and out of the water!
Cheers

Although brook trout are my favorite, these guys come a very close second

My favorite stream not too far from Raleigh

I broke my beloved 2wt recently but Orvis were on the ball and I was back on the bluelines within a week. 1st cast ever with the new broom stick

Hands down my favorite fly of all time.

See you on a blue line soon :)

Welcome to the board. I have followed some of your stuff on Woolly's board and I am sure you have seen a couple of mine.

Nice brook trout and good pics of the rest.
I live 1 mile from brook trout. :mrgreen:

Ha ha, La Trucha, good to hear from you again, when is the smallie show? I gots me a 5wt, so maybe I can sling some craw patterns to some decent feeshes instead of the scummy grass carp who break all my gear!
Cheers

With the hot weather, sure was nice to see your pics being I haven't made any myself in the past few weeks.

Take Care,

Nice pics Mike.
Flydoc and me are heading to some upper elevations to beat the heat and sting some specs tomorrow. You've been up there with him but we're hiking up a different drainage to try our luck.
It'll be good to get on the stream again. Between work and the shop it's been a busy summer so I'm looking forward to it.
Hope to fish with you soon.
If you get over this way....Mi Casa Su Casa.

Cheers man! Hope you and Flydoc stuck 'em! The weather has been brutal. I'll be up that way next weekend, hoping to get my fly lodged in the corner of this 14" specks mouth and land him this time!
Have a good one.
