Re: Predator and Prey

Saw a bald eagle try to take out a Canadian Goose on the South Branch in Califon once . He didn't succeed that time but I'm sure it had worked for him in the past .

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 .

Re: Muddy Water

The pequest hatchery bows are fall spawners so maybe , but they move around for other reasons too . They are forced to spawn in the fall so it fits in with the hatcheries time table . Wild , native rainbows spawn late winter/ spring . It's a whole can of worms but yes the hatchery rainbows in NJ spa...

Re: Bent hooks

Depends where I'm fishing .... In jersey on little wild fish or stocked fish , yea bend it back . But at a higher quality destination with bigger stronger fish , just toss it and tie on a new one . Again this is where the fly tier is rewarded . A tier knows the hook he used and it's quality . You ne...

Re: TMC 518 size 32 hooks wanted

Really hard to get , they no longer make them . I would check eBay , I luckily found a package not long ago , just to have . But years ago I did hook and land a few fish on them . It's a wide gap hook which helps .

The more I think about it. Where can you go that man has not left its mark :?: You can get pretty close in some of the places out west.
