The stats helper monkeys at mulled over how my Sport Fishing Americas blog did in 2010. I was surprised at how SFA has gained momentum. I know there are better blogs out there by people who are more dedicated than I am, but since this is something that I do for fun and to stay connected with the “fly-fishing” passion I was pretty happy to see that there seems to be some interest in what I share here.

Thank you, everyone, who’s come to visit and Happy 2011. I hope you all catch a record this year, and if not, come as close as possible while enjoying this wonderful sport.
