Re: India Brook mischeif

Thanks Rusty. I cannot stress enough how important it is to report this stuff. Please insert a string of insults and curses to the person(s) who did this and another string of curses hoping that they pay for it.

Re: Traveling with Fly Fishing Gear

Quick follow up. Our travels with of fly fishing gear in checked luggage was uneventful. Nothing was stolen. So that's nice.

Re: Wader recomendations

Hey Robtf, Alcohol applied over the inside. Pinholes will show up as a darkened, or wet looking spot. Apply a slight smear of aquel or aquaseal or whatever wader repair stuff you use to the spot on the inside(no need to wait for the alcohol to dry). Let it dry and cure, and voila! Our friends who fi...

Re: Wader recomendations

Rusty is right. Pinhole leaks are easy to repair. He is also right that if you pay up and get more layers they will last longer. That has been my experience.

Hey Garden Hackle. Thanx for ruining my day :D . From the United website:United is not liable for damage to fishing equipment. Our stuff is pretty well protected, and this statement also applies if it is damaged in the overhead compartment. Like with everything else there are risks that need to be e...

Late to the party, as usual. My experience is different. I have had TSA make me check carried on rods. I have had this happen in Newark, and overseas (Ireland). After it the second time it happened, we purchased fishing travel luggage. TSA lists rod holders as approved for carry on. I would print t...

Re: Summer Time Fishing

My wife and I fish the local pond, Garvey's pond, for sunnies. Much fun with a fly rod. They will take anything, so it is a good way to use poorly tied flies that I won't use for trout. It is a 15 minute walk, or a 3 minute drive from the house.

Re: Report: Clairmont Stretch 25 May, 2019

Brookies?! I haven't caught a brookie in that stretch in 3 years at least. Good to hear. Does anyone know if the big tree that used to extend almost all the way across the bridge pool, got cleared away naturally, or did it have help? No Idea about the tree, by the looks of things it was swept away,...

Re: Report: Clairmont Stretch 25 May, 2019

I'm getting confused as well. Is there another Gronsky's aside from the one in High Bridge? Yes, different Gronsky's. I believe the family lives near the Claremont stretch. Not sure if same family as the ice cream place/diner or not. But different location and at the end of the old TCA which is no ...

Report: Clairmont Stretch 25 May, 2019

I fished from the rope swing up to Gronskys on Saturday evening. On the water at 17:40, off at 19:50. There was a number of flies in the air and on the water, caddis and a dark yellow may fly (probably a sulphur). I tricked 8 fish and took 3 to hand. The fish were feeding on the surface. I took one ...

Re: Strangest Bow i Ever Caught

First off, thanx to Rusty for the information. As a molecular biologist my interest was peaked. I went to the googles and after reading some papers I found a page with some pretty good information. Go here for a nice explanation:

Re: Bamboo Fly Rod over Fireplace Mantle?

OK, you asked for opinions, so here is mine: NO, fish it, or sell it to someone who will. If it is in bad shape, and not a viable rod then give it (or sell it for a smaller amount) to someone who will fish it. Then buy a cheap piece of crap that you would never fish, or is un usable and hang that ov...

Re: Edison Fly Fishing Show this weekend

We (my wife and I) went to the show again this year. We bought some new line and had it installed on our reels. We thought that the show was really good, and we were impressed by the number of female anglers and company representatives that were there this year. We were also impressed that there was...

Re: Old Claremont TCA facelift

This is one my favorite spots in NJ, I was disheartened last summer when I last fished the stretch with how much it had slowed down, and how shallow some areas had gotten. I am glad to hear that it is in better shape.

Re: Fly fishing etiquette rant

As a follow up and perhaps a change of the discussion, this is why my wife and I have taken to fishing smaller waters, and taking longer hikes to the water. We also like to fish less popular water. We fished Granite creek one year (outside of Jackson) and caught our fill of large cutts. We saw one o...
