Music-playing, recording, discovering.....and Corvettes!! I have loved em' since I was old enough to know what one was!!!

Finally got an older one (84) about 7 years ago, and she's my pride and joy!! Grandson Sammy loves it when I pick him up from school in it, and we've already decided that it will be his when he's old enough!!

I like music, (I'm just a front porch picker) hunting and fishing, gardening and motorcycles. I've tried golf, but they won't let me on back on the course

I like to tie flies for fishing....



I like to build custom fishing rods (built these for the grandkids)...



This is one of 10 fly rods I've built in the past two years...



And I like to fly fish for freshwater species (catch & release)...



I also enjoy boating and camping.

Computers, like everyone that comes on to this site.

I used to be into using metal detectors to search for and locate various metallic objects, namely coins and jewelry. I really liked finding the older coins. Due to time and vehicle restraints, as well as the price of gas, I pretty much got out of doing that about this time last year.

I've currently taken a serious dive into fishing. I primarily target catfish, preferably some big'uns.

JoeV, that's some nice gear. A bass on a fly? Man, I bet that was a fight!
