Re: Bass in Pt Mnt and mayflies in PA

Smallies are always a nice surprise! Although you usually think you have a trophy trout until you realize its just an 8" smallie, they fight so hard!

I have to try and make it to one of these this year. I just had a couple rods delivered that were ordered over 4 years ago. Dennis Menscer actually has some rods i am interested in as he builds some true medium action rods.
I just put the order in for a nice little 4wt from Ron :D

Looks like a great time-I am hungry and thirsty just looking at the beer and the pig on a spit. Its amazing that brook trout live in that pond-is it deep and spring fed?
Yea, Ronbo built the pond since there was a spring on his property and its 10-12' deep. Stays nice and cold all yea!

It will also be better for spawning purposes, assuming that trout spawn in the SBR. Do we know if trout make redds in the SBR itself, or in tribs that feed in?
Definitely right in the SBR, ive seen hundreds of redds over the years!!

BooFest 2019

Another year, another BooFest. My second time around this year means I wasnt a rookie and didnt have to get duct taped to chair! More good people, awesome rods and even better food. There was plenty of boo, fish, pig and beer to go around. I got to meet the famous Dennis Menscer and cast some of his...

Re: Best fly line for striped bass

Well I dont fish saltwater so Im no real help but I would suggest looking at Rio lines. They have specialty lines for just about everything! Their steelhead and nymph specialty lines are fantastic. I have switched all my other lines to them as well. When Rusty Spinner gets back from his drinking wee...

Re: leaders - buy or diy

For nymphing I make my own as it's just a few different diameter monos and some tippet rings for each replacement. For dry flies I use a tapered leader that I buy. So I'm 50/50.

Finally used my 2019 License

As the owner of a fishing forum I should get my ass out there and fish more often but I haven't been out as much as I should. I finally went out and got my first trout of 2019, a nice wild brown from a really small stream that's rather local to me now. In October we moved closer to trout country so ...

Re: Who Wears A Vest?

I have a vest and wear it occasionally. I have a fanny pack as well, or a small backpack, which I use more. I just load it up with what I will be using that day. The vest hangs in the closet and hold most of fly boxes, that's really its main use. Also, I added a poll for you. Did you see the option ...

Re: Red Ants

Looks like they float nice! Traditionalists will hate but is it really worse than a foam ant? I dont think so. Come early summer a floating ant is a killer on the fly!

Spruce Run Creek

Does anyone know SRC is doing after the quarry crapped it up with sediment? Are there any updates to that story? Would love to see someone held accountable but I am not too hopeful that they had the hammer dropped on them.
