gunpowder falls gene is on a distinguished road
Default Greetings. From a Yorkshire man in Maryland

Hello everyone

My name is Gene Howson. I am currently living outside Baltimore, USA. I moved here from a small village in North Yorkshire when I was 16, it was in Yorkshire on the Swale and Tees where i grew up fishing the local streams, and lakes for anything that swims

Now I manage a small fly shop here called Backwater Angler. I'm also in my second season of guiding wade trips on the local river here - the Gunpowder falls. A tailwater fishery that has a thriving wild trout population, mostly browns with a smattering of rainbows and brookies.

Really looking forward to meeting new folks here and exchanging some fishy stories across the pond!


Cheers!
Gene

Welcome Gene. I think I visited your shop about 7 years ago when I was at a meeting in a Towson!
