Hello all, my name is Will. Since I see all these longstanding members reintroducing themselves, I figured I might as well jump in too! Originally, I am from Northern California, but my job as a UA pipefitter has taken me to the great state of Oregon for an extended (going on five months) business trip. I own and operate 'Da Beast Custom Fishing Rods.' Naturally, I am a die-hard angler! Also, I am an abalone free diver, archer, beer-drinker, sporting clay shooter, and tinkerer/builder of various crap. I also do a bit of writing, drawing and photography as well. Oh, I also love building slingshots! This forum, and the amazing people that I've met here have become some very close friends. Their kindness and support have helped me get through some very hard times. I have more friends here than I can list, so thank you all!
