It is my huge honour to thank you, my amazing readers for your loyal support. I cherish your encouragement and interaction over the last two years. Metiefly started out as a tentative exercise in communicating my piscatorial adventures to my Dad in Bulawayo. I would never have been able to predict what happened next – almost 10,000 visits from 109 countries around the world, and counting. Truly incredible. So far, I failed to invest sufficient time making fly tying videos to the standard I had in mind when I set out in the beginning. I will persevere and I’m looking forward to giving you more and more valuable resource materials, regardless of your fishing or tying level. There’s so much more we can learn.
My tagline “exploring endless opportunities from the best vice ever” did not prepare me for the wonder and joy of blogging about my passion for flyfishing and conservation. Meeting online personalities from around the world, who actually took the trouble to read my posts, like them, comment on them and in some cases share them is fantastic. Questions and answers flew across continents, spreading enthusiasm, constructive criticism, encouragement, cameraderie and above all, a mutual love of the Great Outdoors and all of its treasures. Your feedback is much appreciated.
Because of the internet, we have an unprecedented opportunity to unite in a strong message of respect for our planet. I am compelled to assume a role of responsibility to convey my love of biology and the life sciences to those who are interested. Perhaps some who were not interested previously may be drawn in to find out more. The more they know, the more they will learn to care. Most things evolve… I have spent several months improving my knowledge of online technicalities to build a firm platform from which to continue my endeavours. I continue to reach out to more like minded people around the world.
If you are reading this, you are one of many wonderful people who care. I invite you to join me in the next steps of our adventure at http://www.flyfishingwithme.com
If you have a blog of your own, or if you follow several that mean a lot to you, please let me know how I can assist you in spreading healthy awareness and a positive message for future generations.
With humble gratitude and much respect, thank you for reading and I hope to see you at my new site.
Best regards until then,
