Mike Franzone - 48 married - 2 kids - Firefighter so great fishing schedule!

Grew up in Glen Ellyn and spent much of High School fishing Geneva, St. Charles and Batavia dams.  I now live in Sheridan by the Fox and didn't heed peoples advice to fish all the small creeks around me.  Man do I have catching up to do, which my wife says I do too often.  Am figuring out how to fish the fox down here with quite a bit of luck.  Long stretches with no public access so the wadable areas are hard to access. 

Started kayak fishing a few years ago which has proven successful, as long as I have someone to pick me up on the other end.

Started fly fishing last summer and can't get enough of it.  Anyone with any Fly fishing advice feel free to share.

Excited to be part of the club.

welcome aboard, Mike I am sure that you will find what you are looking for here. The I S A is a group of great guys who are all more than eager to share their knowledge. The secret is to get involved in our activities and meet everyone face to face. The Bassbuggers in particular are most helpful in promoting all things flyfishing.

A great place to start would be our Bronzeback Blowout in just about a month from now.

Hey Mike-Nice to meet you and welcome, I'm new to the forums too. I actually live in sandwich/millingon area and I chase smallies on the fly as well. If you ever want to meet let me know.  I'm out there in the evenings just about every other day.
