Re: Changes to NJ trout season about to be announced

The Governor announced this change yesterday for those that don't believe it or are awaiting formal word. I was posting the Shannon's private waters along Vernoy Road yesterday when the CO pulled up to make sure I knew about the changes and that he was driving the length of the river to let anglers...

Re: Nice large brookie...

Nice one. I've caught a few that surprised me over the years based on the size of the creek.

Re: Dry fly floatant

Frogs fanny. !!!! If that is what you use, buy in bulk for a fraction of what you pay from the fly shops. This bottle will last you and your buddies a couple of lifetimes. It is nothing more than hydrophobic fumed silica. https://www.albochem.com/product/fibercapital-fumed-silica-thickener-high-str...

Tiny bugs, like gnats, lots and lots of them.
I would assume various midges and other no seeums...they dont bite
i was covered in them Tuesday night, can agree looked like midges.
Nothing rising to them?

Re: Raritan river 3/15-16/20

Nice Trout, looks like a holdover from the Fall. What was hatching, Caddis?

Re: Dry Fly Fishing 3_14_2020

I was out yesterday afternoon. Landed a Brown on a black soft hackle, switched to a small elk-hair caddis when I saw a few hatching, hooked another Brown but lost it. Also saw small LBS about a size 18 or 20.

Re: Little Black Stoneflies

I've found that as long as the sub-surface or surface fly is black and size 18 to 16 the trout will happily take it. Simple black soft hackle or elk hair caddis does the trick.

Re: Who Uses a Net?

I always use a net, safest way to land and release Trout regardless of size, barbless hooks help also. I have a few of various sizes to fit the trout I'm after. I would like to resurrect my original small creek net, hence my netting post.

Most likely! If you are on Instagram look up Riversongnets. He builds his own custom nets so perhaps he could do just your netting. He does the clear “ghost” style rubber. So as long as a size exists he can install it.
Thank you. I'll reach out.

Trout Netting Replacement

Happy New Year Gents. Does anyone know someone in North Jersey who could customize size and install a soft nylon netting for a small brookie net. I've had this net for nearly 30 years and need new netting installed. It's a small net and none of the available pre-made netting will fit, plus I don't w...

Re: Final 2019 Trout and First on a New Rod

Congrats on the new rod and breaking the ice with it. I was out the day before, caught a few brookies and one brown, all on a wet fly.

We done.

Nothing wrong with a worm fly. Every stream has aquatic worms, and land based worms enter the stream after a rain.

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.
