    Hello from the foothils of the Sierra Mountains

    Hi folks:

    I'm Greg. I came here via Shug's videos which I found via John the Intense Angler's videos which I found via Jason Klass' videos which I found via learning about Tenkara fly fishing.

    I'm a backpacker and fly fisherman who has lately been focusing on Tenkara fishing (Pole, line and fly only, no reel). And I've been moving towards ultralight camping which is why I am interested in hammock camping.

    3 weeks ago I was backpacking up near Penner Lake and saw a group hang of about 5 guys right on the shore of Penner Lake. I thought "that looks interesting". But it was such a different way of thinking about backpacking that I wasn't really sure what to make of it. However, that night I spent an uncomfortable night on rocky ground sleeping on an angle and I was thinking about those guys in the hammocks. Hmm.

    I just bought and have read "Hammock Camping" and am looking into the DIY aspect of hammock camping. I think this is something I could really get in to.

    It's good to meet you all. Maybe we'll put some miles under out boots together in the future.

    Greg

    Welcome from the Central Valley! It's funny: all of the videos that you mentioned I have seen, but in a different order--we're all different but the same .

    I don't do a lot of fishing, but when I start, I will definitely start with a tenkara rig. pgibson at AHE (a vender here at the forums) sells tenkara gear, and if I ever get some money to spend, I'm throwing it his way for a rod and some flies (and an underquilt, and a topquilt, and a...)

    @Kapang!--I spent my elementary school years in Citrus Heights... good times!
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock
