Re: Traveling with Fly Fishing Gear

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 ...

Re: Traveling with Fly Fishing Gear

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: lost rod/reel

I hope it shows up, some people are honest. I got introduced to NJTROUT after finding an expensive outfit while walking the KLG one morning. I put up a sign and the owner contacted me and described the outfit right down to the fly. We met and he shoved a bunch of bills in my hand and would not take ...

Re: Thieves in KLG

WTFDHTWGH?

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”.

Re: NJ Stockies

Yep, that's why I like throwing streamers. The strikes really get your heart pumping! Throwing streamers is like cheating, you know when you got a strike and most times they hook themselves. It’s like dry fly fishing, the real talen is nymphing. Nah, nymphing is just worm dunking with feathers and ...

Re: NJ Stockies

Fish an articulated streamer like a Sex Dungeon or Drunk & Disorderly which have stinger hooks on the back and your short strike issue nearly disappears for good. I find a lot of NJ anglers fish nothing larger than a size 10 woolly bugger, but don't be afraid to toss a much larger streamer here loc...

Re: poaching in Claremont section above the grist mill

I believe there is now an app for that, but the phone number still works.

Always take picture, either discreetly or right in their face (depending on your comfort level).

You may not get quick response, but at least they have a record of the violation.

Re: List fishing licenses

I always buy online and print 3-4 licenses in case I lose one or forget to bring one. Plus, I always save the email and license so I can reprint them.

don't sweat the temps wrap then in tinfoil with some butter, white wine salt pepper garlic. yummy
Stocked trout cooked that way taste of butter, wine, salt, pepper and garlic. The stocked trout, if you are lucky, does not add any flavor.

Re: Sink Tip Fly Line

Most NJ streams do not need a sink tip. The leader and tippet is usually long enough to reach the bottom without a sink tip. Plus a sink tip would mask any hits.

Now, in deep waters, a sink tip can be helpful to get that fly to the right depth.

Oh, and fishing sink tips is like cheating :D
