    Hello everyone and welcome!

    My name is Clint Losee and I’m the owner of The Fly Fishing Basics. To give you a little context, I’m trying out setting up a forum to allow everyone to hopefully get more information from their fellow fly fishers. I figure one of the best ways to learn is to get insight from those around you that are either learning as well or those that have a little more experience. So why not right. 🙂

    Since this is an introduce yourself section here’s a little about me. I’ve been fly fishing for something like 30+ years now and started and the age of 8. I’m also a software engineer by day and landscape and nature photographer the other times. I learned how to fly fish alongside my brother and my Dad and boy did it take some time to learn. I struggled a lot in the early days and even now I still do.

    I’m located in the great State of Utah and have fished around the country in various different places from California to North Carolina and a few places in between. I can’t think of much more at the time, but you can always read a little more here. If anyone has any questions, feel free to let me know.

    Enjoy!

    Good Evening Clint!

    Looking forward to much more content from yourself and other anglers in the future. I have read and watched everything on the site and love that things are tailored to complete beginners. For instance your article on leaders and tippet provided a very fresh perspective from a seasoned angler that was well understood from a beginner.

    A little about me is that I am the first in my family to be a passionate angler. Since that is the case it came with a lot of reading and reaching out to individuals since I did not have the benefit of this skill being passed down. Primarily I was a bass angler and have done my fair share of tournaments as a non-boater. My trout experience was spin casting and just buying the latest and greatest. Fishing was awesome for the fact that I found myself in nature on the bank of a river with stimulation only found in nature. The added benefit of catching a fish was something extra as the activity was what I longed for. This is why I decided to get into fly fishing as it was an extremely enjoyable added challenge and i enjoyed catching a fish on a fly that I tied.

    My background is that I have an accounting degree but my profession is a Community Association Manager or for short a property manager for condominiums. I enjoy all aspects of the outdoors and started this passion by working at an archery range for 10+ years. Thus my love for the outdoors and hunting ensued. I am blessed that I have several friends who are Orvis a guides and look to their guidance. All in all I am looking to spending more time outside than I already do and devote my time to another sport that proivdes more rewards than other activities. I am located in Connecticut and have only fished the northeast but have landed several notable species. Looking forward to learning and once I have enough being able to pass it on to new anglers as I continue to learn!

    Welcome ThaWhitster231! Thanks for the reply.

    Definitely an great story and one I’m sure that many can share. You can’t go wrong with nature! 🙂 That’s awesome with the connection to the Orvis guides for some guidance. I know a few out here in Utah and they are top notch fisherman. I haven’t had the chance to fish Connecticut before, but it’s always been on my bucket list. I drove through the state a few years back with my wife during the Fall and it was just amazing. I definitely need to get back to the area.

    If you have any questions or anything you’d like to discuss, start up a new post and we’ll see if we can get this going with some more information. It’s a bit slow going, but hopefully it’ll progress with time.
