It's a summer job. Did you expect $50/hr.? :)
I bet the pay rate relies on multiple sliding scales.

Thanks everyone, I'll be here all week.

Re: *THIS* is why you need a big-a** sealed drag

I get them big like that sometimes on my porch light. I'll take a picture next time I see a big one. Please, gentlemen. Can we not drift from the purpose of this post which was to justify the use of a sealed drag on 5-inch trout? Well ya'll need a fast, overlined 8 wt. to cast them giant midges als...

Re: Spruce Run

I was correct in that it was for the quarry's SEP project, and I swung by yesterday. It's a disaster and the engineer is the same one that screwed the pooch on the Ramapo for one of my competitors when the Borough of Oakland tried to restore sections of that river a few years back. Being a WTS, all...

We have all been ignorant before No one is perfect. The darkness is another thing. Don't talk about peoples families or business. Ju...

Re: Spruce Run

OK, so no one on the other board responded, maybe here. Some work is happening to the Creek in Glen Gardner. Who is doing it and I hope it looks better than the start when they are done. Those large abutments are hideous. i doubt I'll hear from Rusty after the thrashing he got on NEFF :shock: , don...

Re: West Branch Flow from Reservoir to Drop to ZERO

I think it would do very little in any negative way as water temps are ideal this time of yr....Had they done something like this in the summer , it would be disastrous!!!

Would love to fish lordville when its under a G!!!
