Re: Net Rig

I only starting using a net like 3 years ago and used a magnetic release. I liked it but had to be careful walking through thick brush cause sometimes it would snag on something and come off but I'd usually always notice it. Well, I lost my net a few trips ago fishing a WTS so I had to order a new ...

Re: New Member: Euro Nymphing Equipment Advice

The 10ft or 10ft6 or 11ft rods are great for indicator fishing to , so don't think your locked into euro nymphing with those rods . I like the long soft euro rods for delicate dry fly fish as the protect the tippet better. I'm not really a euro guy , but I'd recommend Trout Bitten blog , anything Ge...

Re: Need a Crash Course on Spring Flies

I would just add that besides all these great suggestions , get a few hares Ear nymphs without the bead. In a pinch you can float them in the surface film as a caddis pupa or a floating nymph/emerger , so it has dual uses . Also scuds scuds scuds after the Sulphers that's kinda what's left on the me...

Re: Van Campens restoration project.

Look it sucks but for me Van Campers is strictly a cold weather / weekday destination . I know they can't ...... Again I'll say , I know they can't but I love what they did on the broadhead . Parks system is for residents to use and PA fishing license holders every one else can use it but it's 10$ a...

Winter has zero effect on tick populations. They are all crawling around in the leaves beneath the snow, waiting for a hapless critter to walk past. Wish it weren't so, but winter does not kill ticks one bit.
That's a real downer

Re: Winter Trout, Anyone?

If it effects the bugs it effects the fish . Not just talking about emergence , just movement or river migration , bugs move . I'd wait til the warmest part of the day .

Re: nice stocker brown

It's not 100% but what is? But when you see the dots on a brown trout starting to connect closer to the tail , it's usually a stocked fish .
