Re: WTS 1/30

Loss of suitable spawning habitat or trout magnets are other possibility for one species to vanish besides disease and panther martins. Thermal events is related to spawning as is numerous low water years. I feel targeted......... didnt you know, once a trout touches a soft plastic or a spinner bla...

Re: Tiger Trout

Nice job!!

Im the opposite spectrum of catching tigers, all of mine have been wild. I ave caught 3 in my time if I recall. Two from a WTS and one from the KLG which was the most surprising fish of the bunch. It was only about 5-6" so definitely a wild fish.

Re: WTS 1/30

Birds could do real number on a stream, but I don't see how they could lead to a wholesale collapse like the one you mentioned in NE NJ (the Q?) No not there. Most I have seen in Warren/Hunterdon streams. Tribs to larger rivers like Delaware, SBRR, Paulinskill and Musky as well as tribs to our rese...

A lovely write up about Rick (and the late John Shollenberger) from Chris Wood, the president of TU national.

Re: Who Uses a Net?

I only got a net after I got my *gasp* tenkara rod. I had John AKA Riversong Nets build me a custom one with a longer handler. This makes landing a fish when you dont have a reel much, much easier. I use it more and more lately when not fishing with the tenkara rod, which isnt often anymore, as the ...

Who Uses a Net?

Since the netting thread is evolving into a new thread about nets, how often do you use a net for trout? If you do or dont what is your reasoning behind it?

Re: R.I.P. Rick Ege (stonefly)

Yesterday I cleaned up the old Hardy reel Rick always joked about me having since I told him our different casting/rod preferences meant I never wanted to own one of his rods when he passed. Rick prefered a mid-flex rod and I like a faster tip flex rod. So I will fish his old Hardy Princess on my r...

Re: R.I.P. Rick Ege (stonefly)

Thank you for posting this, Brian. I first encountered Rick on the old school NJ Trout along with many of you. I find it amazing how many friendships these forums and the greater TU community have fostered. Not long after being introduced to TU Mike Rediger, Mr. MCR, myself and a few friends started...

Re: Happy new yrs!!!!

Happy New Year everyone, don’t forget your 2020 fishing license if you head out. In years past some had posted pictures with the previous years license visible. Good luck out there and stay off the icebergs when fishing (Tom RU listening? LOL) I don’t know what you are talking about...... But yea, ...

Re: Final 2019 Trout and First on a New Rod

Nice rod and fish. I just picked up a Simroe 7.5" 3wt the other day. You will get to really like bamboo, especially on the small streams. It is good for most things with the exception of dredging nymphs on the bottom of large rivers, which is not my favorite type of fishing anyway. It’s a dangerous...

Nice looking rod, Tom.

And I'm glad to see there are still fish in that stream :D Just be careful on that bridge; I believe there's only one handrail?
There is a handrail on the left and right side..... depending on which way you walk across :lol:

Dude let’s get a beer or fish!!! Or both!

Re: Final 2019 Trout and First on a New Rod

Very nice rod, I really like the green wraps. Not familiar with that taper, though. I've heard of Ronbo bamboo rods, how was he to work with, and are you satisfied? How did you decide on the taper? My first bamboo build was with pale green wraps and dark green tipping, blued hardware. I wrapped a D...

Re: Trout Netting Replacement

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.

Final 2019 Trout and First on a New Rod

Hi all, With the temps on the 40s and the water up December 31st was a good day for the last trout of the year! With nothing going on during the day I headed to a nearby WTS to get the last out of my 2019 license. I also wanted to take the chance to break in my new Ronbo bamboo rod. A friend and rod...
