Re: Fly storage

Try Michael's, Walmart or Hobby lobby normally have decent boxes that are deep and won't crush hackle , I think in the beading section ... There are a few mega guide boxes you can buy and fill but it's kind of a waste. You could just sink them into large sheets of foam , but something bad is bound t...

Re: Traveling with Fly Fishing Gear

I carry my rods, reels get checked in my suitcase and packed between clothing..DO NOT carry a vise on with you as it will be seized and thrown out.I watched it happen to a good friend. It was just the head too, not the base. The only thing I have ever had broken was a net that was in my suitcase......

Thieves in KLG

Heard about an incident recently where a friend left his pack on the hood of his truck , to look at the water in the lower KLG , walking a minute or 2 away , and on his return finding it gone . I know there's alot of second guessing that could go on , but the the bottom line is Don't Take Shit that ...

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...

Re: Shannon's One Fly

Question you gotta ask yourself , do you wanna be the guy to tie a mop in front of those youngsters ? And if you win do you wanna be the guy who won with a piece of mop . That's between you and your God. Heavy is the head that wears the crown of the one bug .
I support you either way !

Re: Who Wears A Vest?

who here fished with those crappy old zebco closed face button launchers....might have been the worst reel ever made. I was 5 and knew it stunk....still had fun though. 😁 Nothing has hurt fishing license sales more than those Dog Shit reels ..... I'd give up fishing if that's all I had ... I'm sure...

All in all it was very successful event , 75 total tiers attended , all 10 New Jersey Chapters of Trout Unlimited were represented , 2 Pennsylvania Chapters were represented , and I think the approximate number of flies was way over 2000. Some really generous tiers went above and beyond donating hun...
