Re: Fly storage

Appreciate the tips! Long story short. The summer temps are here and my dog just got a surgery. No trout fishing or running dogs for me at the moment. This has me tying a lot of flies. I figure I won't have lost time to tying once I can get out on the water again or in the fields to get more pheasan...

Fly storage

Forum has been quiet - so figured I'd post a question to get some conversation going.

For those that tie their own flies - how do you store them? I have found it difficult to find cheap flambeau like boxes where each storage compartment is the same size. It drives the OCD in me nuts.

I'm running up to the West Branch tomorrow for some tailwater dry fly fishing.
Jealous. I wish NJ had some nice tailwater to support a trout fishery.

Re: Summer Time Fishing

I try to make a few trips to the tailwaters I fish, but other than that, trout fishing comes to an end for me until the fall. The family and I have taken to Kayaking so I try to catch some sunnies and bass on the 6wt while we're out. Other than that I am putzing around at the vise watching Tim Flagl...

Summer Time Fishing

How will you spend your time fishing now that the heat is here? Another type of fishing? Tying flies? Cutting the grass?

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?

Re: Anyone Hit A No Kill Stretch This Weekend?

Hit the gorge on Friday. It was well stocked with trout and people. There seemed to be a person fishing every 10 feet from memorial rock on down.

"It's filled with micronymphers! You are probably one of them. Are you fishing with small nymphs?" ~ Random person voicing displeasure in the parking lot last Friday morning. It is a beautiful place that can be fun to fish, but I limit my time spent there because it can get frustrating. I am also th...

Re: Gorge stocking

I heard they are no longer stocking the Gorge. They reallocated those trout to the Manville section of the Raritan.

Re: Stocking

Can't wait. More people on the water and all of the nice sized holders end up on a stringer. I'm going to go get me a fall stocker holdover this weekend. 6 months in the river on natural food should make them better table fare. :lol: I guess I'll have to start fishing the Manville section of the Ra...

Re: stuck in a rut

Confidence is key , but the bottom line is you got to go where the fish are , you always increase your chances when you go some where you know the population of trout is high. Yes that sounds simple , but it might be a factor . Very true! I learned to nymph at the KLG. Lots of hungry fish there mos...

stuck in a rut

Venting on a Monday morning. I have been skunked the last 3 times I was out, but was having a very good winter fishing season until then. Streamers, pheasants tails, stoneflies, and egg patterns had been working well and all of a sudden they were not. Maybe my technique has been off? Streams flows a...

Re: I Need Some New Waders

I am very happy with my pair of Redington sonic pros that I got them from back country during a 40% off sale. I try to support local as much as I can, but that was money I could not leave on the table.

Can we trust introducing a new species will have the intended outcome down the road? It often seems like we regret these things years later.

Re: Looking for Help

At least it didn't fly off into a deep pool in front of your face immediately after the line broke off. Then you would have to decide how much a new rod is worth to you.

I picked up a new 7 weight for my Labrador trip last year, so I'm all set for awhile as I really don't need anything. My next big purchase is a new rifle in .257 Roberts. I have the Leupold scope brand new in the box, so I just need a gun to mount it on. Figured no need to keep shooting a big magnu...

Re: Next on your purchase list

You did not give length or purpose nymph vs. dry or all around. Look at the Cortland Competition if you need a nymphing rod. I have had my eye on that one since I saw the winner of the one fly in 2017 use it. Shannons carries it if you want to check it out. About $250 if I remember correctly. Just ...
