    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 to the forum Gene.
    There's more to life than just fishing....but I ignore them.

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