Re: First trip of new year

Nice job! I hit a small stream Sunday but only had 1 hook up and lost that one when it got into a log jam. I did manage to hook just about every over hanging tree on the river!

Re: Morris County Park Commission is proposing to dispose of 6.5+/- of undeveloped parkland

I hate to see it when undeveloped land bordering any sort of water gets slated for development.

Re: Gearing Up for Fishing

Am I making things hard on myself? I seem to be the only fisherman that I see assembling his fly rod and stringing it where he parks by the river. Especially in winter conditions, it seems that anything you can do to speed-up getting into the water and at-it fishing is a good thing. Yeah, I've seen...

Re: Shenandoah River

I've used Mossy Creek Fly Fishing guides in Harrisonburg, VA. Not sure how close they are to where you are going to be fishing but they are great.

Re: has anyone heard about this ?

I actually put one up by Flatbrook. See my IG post https://www.instagram.com/p/B-HaYr3Axzu/

The last time I was up there someone had had added a few nymphs and my Woolly Bugger was gone.

Pretty cool concept.

Re: Small Mouth Bass - Raritan River

I have been wanting to hit the Raritan myself but just haven't had the time. Looks like you had some great success, small mouth on a fly rod are so much fun.

I'm going to have to make it a point to get out there soon.

Re: Barbless Regulations and Their Pointlessness

I've seen way too many fishermen on the river (both fly and spin guys) struggle to get the hook out of the fish they just landed. I feel that the faster the hook can be removed the better, especially with everyone taking longer to release each fish because they need their grip and grin photo.

Re: guess where Im @ on the Musky

I have dropped three phones in the drink in the past 8 months.... one more and my wife won’t let me go fishing anymore! I have a Samsung Galaxy S9+ smartphone and I use it underwater all the time. Felt real strange purposely sticking it underwater the first few times but now it comes natural. I get...

Re: Little Black Stoneflies

I was hiking near a small WTS on Sunday and I noticed some trout rising. I went over to investigate and saw some crawling up on the rocks.

Re: WTS 1/30

I know that it seems like there are more and more herons around. You used to see an occasionally one while fishing the WTS now it seems like you see a few on every stream. These guys must also be contributing to the decline in trout.

Nothing like exploring and finding new water that holds trout.

nice trout-wild or clubfish?
Nice trout regardless. The first pic looks to be wild. Last pic looks for sure wild. Second pic and Rainbow stocked fish. I assume somewhere on the SBR.
Not sure if the browns are wild or not, but all I know is they were fun to catch!

Hard to tell, the second photo you will notice that the pelvic fins look a little worn down. Strange thing is that usually whenever I catch browns the aggressively strike even in the cold but this time the browns were much more subtle strikes.

Cold Morning, Icy Guides, Hungry Trout

I got out Sunday morning and went to one of my favorite rivers. Air temp was only 26 when I hit the water (forgot my thermometer so not sure what the water temp was) and the guides on my rod iced up for the first few hours. River flow was good but I was surprised to still see so many leaves in the w...

Backing

I am going to pick up a new fly line for Pike fishing. I am going with the RIO INTOUCH PIKE/MUSKY in a 9wt. I also need to pick up some backing and can't believe the cost of backing. What do you guys use for backing? Any recommendations? I was thinking of either 20lb or 30lb at around 250 to 300 yar...
