Ronan's report


Sunday 28th December, 2014

I'm not quite sure how this happened, but Paul convinced me to write some FPs, normally I have better sense. But, it is winter in Montana, and I'm retired, sort of…. I’m not quite sure what I'll write about after this FP but I doubt there will be fantastic tales of fishing in Montana, at least not for a while. Once it gets real cold here, which is overdue, ice and frigid water limit fishing opportunities, at least until March.

When Paul first started the SexyLoops site I was a frequent participant on "the board". That was a "time of enlightenment" for addicted fly casters. We finally had a forum to discuss all things fly casting. The most knowledgeable fly casters in the world were involved, and Paul... Of course, Paul was usually wrong, but he did get it right now and then!

It's a good thing I didn't log time and posts made to SL in those early years, it would have been hard to justify the time, but it was a lot of fun and everyone learned a lot. Fly casting is a different sport now, due to Paul's vision, and the contributions of many dedicated casters. I did find that, for me, there was no way to be a part-time contributor, it is addicting. I'm sure many reading this understand!

I've been teaching and studying fly casting since the early 1970s and believe that this site has been the most important force in furthering the understanding of fly casting in that time. No aspect of fly casting is too minor for a spirited debate by "the board"! No group understands fly casting better than "the board". It was a privilege to be involved in the beginning, even though I had to deal with Paul....

I'm glad to be back, hopefully I can provide some FPs of interest...
