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...

You cannot expect places to be open when work is still being conducted, even if you do not see work being conducted.

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

Re: South Branch Advise

Remember your 2019 fishing license. I saw three anglers at the gorge and each was displaying their 2018 license. I have no doubt they will soon get and display the current license. The water was high, moving fast and off color. I doubt they caught anything.
