Re: Who Uses a Net?

To carry a net is to dream you might catch a fish.

Re: Who Uses a Net?

I look to travel light, unless I am fishing salmon or steelhead, I usually leave the net behind.

Re: Trout Netting Replacement

Not trying to hijack or diminish your thread, just curious: how many people don't use a net at all? When my first one got worn out, I just never got a new one. Now I release all my fish in the water (as of late, at least; I hope no one can produce my infamous Gill Grab...). Fishing with a net is li...

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

Rick was always first to volunteer at TU events, always tying up a few stoneflies at the table. He couldn’t get around much because of his knees, but he talked of his many trips fishing. He was treasurer for the NJTU as well as RVTU for many years. Most of us know of his stocking efforts and may hav...

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)

It's almost over , but more importantly the days have started to get longer , just about 4 months till trout season in NJ gets into full swing
You can fish for trout year round, not on every stream, river or lake, but all year round in NJ.

Nice winter colors on those fish! I need to get off my lazy ass and do some fishing! I also enjoy the winter months for trout. Cold yes, but also very peaceful and easier to find water to yourself.
You spend too much time on the links and brewpubs to be a trout angler.

Re: South Holston/Tuckasegee Rivers

The South Holston holds 5,000 to 7,000 trout per mile, so great fishing. It's a honey hole in winter when our rivers are frozen over largely. I have three buddies that guide there and they are always trying to get me down there. Thats a hell of a fish count!! 7000 fish per mile would also be 1.3 fi...

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...

If the bottom line is “don’t take shit that doesn’t belong to you” (I agree 110%), the second to bottom line has to be, “don’t leave stuff for scumbags to steal”.
