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 .

Re: CBS video on fly fishing's growing popularity during Q-tine

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. The Thorofare section of Yellowstone has been called the remotest area in the lower 48, the only foot steps have been from Native Americans, early explorers and ba...

Re: Raritan river- rough week ! 6/30/20:

PA had this problem , local authorities put fees on the parks for out of towners . On the broadhead you can party , follow all the laws and before you step out of the car $10 a person . Free if you have a PA fishing license.

Re: Summer Trout

Pohat ,Musky , Pequest & Lopat all have some limestone influence . There are a couple small tailwaters .... Everything is fishable if you wait for the right weather window and check your temps .

Re: C&R

I'm not going to count them but I'd say the over / under is 7 .5 anglers in the klg at 4:30 pm after the rivers been cooked all day.
And yes I've walked it in the evening on a hot day and guys are very impressed with themselves , can't figure out why it's not crowded

Bug Week can be very frustrating when they key in on one life stage of a single insect and nothing you toss at them works. The Delaware always rewards the fly tier , you...

So I waited around and finally started fishing around 6:30 or so and there was a hatch starting and the fish were feeding on top and by 7:30 or so they ...
