Default New to the Forum Introduction; hello, I'm Johnny

Hello all.
My name is Johnny, I hail from the North Shore, North Fork of eastern Long Island, Noo Yawk.
I found this forum recently, as I have gotten back to my love of all things fishing after a 12 year or so absence. I broke my back on the job, and everything physical I used to do went bye bye.
I have been surfcasting for the past two months or so, getting used to using those muscles required to cast. It's been a slow progression but even if I can only be casting for 15 minutes, it is an amazing feeling to be fishing again.
When I was a kid, I used to fish with my cousins every day in the summer from their, maybe, 14 foot wooden skiff, with a 5 hp. Happy days those were !!! We'd pack up the shopping cart with everything we needed for the day of fishing, and walk about 3 miles to the boatyard.
Coming back to my roots, so to speak, and fishing again has been making me feel like a kid again, with all of the excitement and feelings. I am physically handicapped, but not mentally, and I will do all I can to make my body able to fish ! I'm loving it. I invested in a lighter (weighted) rod and reel combo that unquestionably has enabled me to spend more time fishing.
I went with a St. Croix Avid surf 9'6" medium/heavy power, moderate/fast action I believe, and coupled it with a Quantum Cabo 60 reel.
This is a great forum, I am thankful to those that run it and to all those that post here. I have gained much knowledge from my readings thus far on this forum, and I am looking forward to reading and learning and meeting as many as the good people on here as possible.

Happy Fishing to y'all.

Johnny

Thank you for welcoming me Jake.

In my introductory post, I stated that my new rod was a St. Croix Avid Surf 9'6".....check that, I made an error. It is a 9 foot rod, and has medium power, moderate/fast action. My apologies for not fact checking it exactly before I posted.
I purchased a few new Super St#&@+ lures today at one of my local "new", to me, tackle shops. I think I'll head on over to the forum section on tackle and post something there on my new acquisitions, after I've given them some action, and give a read to what other forum members have to say about the same lures.
Thanks again Jake for your welcoming me aboard!
There's such a vast array and wealth of excellent information as well as tremendous amounts of knowledge posted here on this forum for me to soak in & sponge up. I'm considering myself lucky to have happened upon it!
